Ingredients:  
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 12-ounce pork tenderloins
12 ounces fresh pea pods, strings removed (3 cups)

Directions:
Marinade:
Combine teriyaki sauce, garlic, and five-spice powder. Place whole pork tenderloins in plastic bag set into a shallow dish. Add marinade; seal bag. Turn meat to coat well. Chill 2 to 24 hours, turning meat occasionally.

Vegetables:
Tear off 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil. Fold in half to make a double thickness of foil that measures 18x18 inches. Place pea pods and red sweet pepper in center of foil. Sprinkle with orange peel and brown sugar. Bring up two opposite edges of foil and seal with double fold. Then fold remaining ends to completely enclose vegetables, leaving space for steam to build.

Remove pork from bag, reserving marinade. Place pork on grill. Cover and grill for 30 to 35 minutes or until juices run clear (150- to 160-degree temperature for the pork), brushing occasionally with marinade up to the last 5 minutes of grilling. Add vegetable packet the last 15 minutes of grilling, turning packet once. Remove pork from grill and cover with foil. Let meat stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with vegetables.
