1. To prepare the brine:
2. Turn off the heat and add in the 4 cups of ice. Allow to cool completely.
3. Once cool, add the pork tenderloins to a large re-sealable bag or container and pour the brine over top. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
4. To prepare the glaze:
5. Mix together the apple butter, hoisin, ginger, lemon, garlic, and 5-spice powder.
6. After the two hours, remove the tenderloin from the brine and pat dry.
7. Add the olive oil to a large nonstick skillet and sear the pork tenderloin on all sides until evenly browned. Do not wipe or rinse out the pan.
8. Transfer the tenderloins to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush with the glaze, reserving the remaining glaze. Cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 145-150 F, about 20 minutes.
9. To prepare the stir-fry:
10. Return the large nonstick skillet to the burner over medium high heat.
11. Add the carrots and cook for 2 minutes.
12. Add the apple cider mixture and the remaining apple butter glaze to the pan and cook on high until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes.
13. Add in the zucchini noodles, apple, bean sprouts and edamame and toss to coat in the sauce and lightly cook the noodles.
14. Divide the noodles between 8 plates. Slice the pork tenderloins into ½ inch pieces and fan on top of the noodles.
