The Chew: Roblé Ali’s Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin Sliders
Chef Roblé Ali, star of reality show Chef Roblé and Company, came on the show to live out his life-long dream of cooking with Mario Batali (says Mario Batali) and show us his Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin Sliders Recipe. Being a caterer, Roblé Ali has to be quick on his feet. He may be cooking Asian food one day, and Italian food on another day. Roblé said that he loves these Pork Tenderloins because it is a very easy and approachable and Hawaiian-esq sandwich, so you will probably love it, as well!
Though Roblé Ali is very nice on the show, he doesn’t have any qualms about getting a little rough on his show when he has to. He rarely loses his temper, and in the clip that was show, he had a pretty good reason to get a little upset when a cook really dropped the ball on a cake, making it so that they couldn’t serve the dish. The girl he got rough with is a friend, but he has gotten rough with her when he had to.
The Chew: Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin Sliders Recipe Ingredients
- 1 pound of Pork Tenderloin
- 1 cup of Cola
- 1/2 cup of Soy Sauce
- 3 cloves of Garlic
- 1 tablespoon of Thai Chili Sauce
- 2 tablespoons of Cornstarch
- 1 Mango
- 1 bunch of Cilantro
- 1 bunch of Scallions
- 8 Hawaiian Bread Slider Buns
- Vegetable Oil
- Salt and Pepper (freshly ground)
Chef Roblé: Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin Sliders Directions
- Preheat your grill or grillpan to medium-high heat.
- In a blender, blend together the cola, soy sauce, chili sauce and garlic until the garlic is pureed into the cola and soy sauce.
- Seal the pork in a plastic bag with this marinade, squeezing out all the air, and allow it to marinate in the fridge for at least two hours.
- During this time, lightly drizzle some oil onto your scallions and season them with salt and pepper.
- Grill them lightly. Then, let them cool off.
- Slice your mangos up into spears and add some oil and seasoning with your salt and pepper.
- Grill these mangos until they have visible grill marks.
- Remove your pork from the sealed bags, but hold onto the liquid.
- Dry your pork off with a paper towel, then brush on some oil.
- Sear your pork on a grill or a grill pan until caramelization forms. Then, move it into an oven and cook it until the internal temperature is at 140 degrees.
- Move your marinade liquid into a saucepan, where you will whisk in 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and then bring to a boil.
- Cook the sauce until it has thickened.
- Once your pork has sat out for a bit, put your sandwiches together with your sauce, grilled scallions, cilantro, grilled mango, and pork on your Hawaiian Slider Buns.
