Looking for something light yet filling? Try these wonderful Pork Spring Rolls. Serve as an appetizer or with a bowl of your favorite Asian vegetable soup for a wonderful light lunch. Makes 18 rolls.

• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon low   sodium soy sauce
• 1 - 1 3/4 pound pork tenderloin
• 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger,   chopped
• 1/2 cup plum sauce
• 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 1 large seedless cucumber, cut into 1/8   inch long strips
• 8 green onions, cut into 1/8 inch thick, 3   inch long strips
• 18 spring roll wrappers

Marinate the pork: Combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce, brown sugar and pepper in a large dish. Add the pork tenderloin, turn to coat and let sit 15 minutes.
Make the sauce: Preheat oven to 400°F. Stir together the plum sauce, crystallized ginger, remaining soy sauce, and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.
Cook the pork: Heat the vegetables oil over medium-high heat in a large, oven proof skillet. Remove meat from marinade and brown on all sides. Transfer to the oven and roast until an internal temperature of 155° F is reached - 15 to 20 minutes. Place the pork loin on a cutting board, let sit 10 minutes, slice into 1/2 inch thick strips and set aside.
Assemble the spring rolls:
Place the spring roll wrappers in a large bowl and immerse in warm water. Let sit until softened - about 3 minutes. Remove one wrapper from the water, place on a clean surface and blot excess water with a paper towel. Place two pieces of pork, about 1 teaspoon of sauce, 3 cucumber pieces, and 3 onion pieces in the center of the wrapper toward the top and roll toward you to create spring roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately or cover with a damp paper towel and refrigerate.
