Coriander Pork Tenderloin With Carrot-Ginger Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by dicentra

From Bon Appetite. Feb 2000 - but I found it in my 2001 book. They say to serve it with Jasmine rice with sesame seeds, steamed snow peas, a dry Gewurztraminer and serve a melon salad for dessert. Sounds wonderful!
