Black Team's Slimmer Summer Slaw with Pork Medallions
When I visited the Season 12 Biggest Losers for a cooking challenge, I have to admit I was impressed. The stakes were high: Each team had just 30 minutes to create a healthy, low-calorie, delicious entree worthy of making it into [The Biggest Loser Quick and Easy Cookbook]. The winners not only got their recipe printed here, but also received a 1-pound advantage at weigh-in and a special lunch date with Season 11 winner Olivia Ward. In the end, the Black Team won with this tasty, satisfying pork dish that comes in at only 210 calories per serving. Congrats, Antone, Vinny, and Becky!

Instructions
  1. Preheat a grill to high heat.
  2. Lightly mist the tenderloin with the olive oil spray and season it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Grill the tenderloin for 3 to 5 minutes on the 3 faces until it is just barely pink in the center (or a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160 F). Remove it to a cutting board or platter and tent it with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes. Then slice it into 1/2"-thick pieces.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the vinegar, sesame oil, and yogurt until well combined. Whisk in the salt and season with pepper.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, toss the cabbages, peppers, peas, cucumber, and tomatoes with the dressing. Divide the slaw among 4 dinner plates, mounding it to one side of the plate.
  6. If using, in a small microwave-safe bowl, mix the cranberry sauce and ginger. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds, or until the sauce is slightly melted and warm.
  7. Fan one-quarter of the pork, slices next to the slaw on the empty portion of each plate. Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce on the side of each, if desired.
