Here is a different and very tasty way to make tenderloin...I make this often at our house, this is one of my husband's favorite pork dishes. Note: the longer the pork marinates, the better it will be.....prep time includes marinade time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil.
  2. Place the pork tenderloin in a heavy plastic bag.
  3. Pour the soy mixture over the pork to coat well.
  4. Cover and marinate 6-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. Remove the pork from the marinade; pat dry.
  6. Let sit out at room temperature for 1 hour before coating and cooking.
  7. Mix together the honey and brown sugar in a shallow plate.
  8. Rub the tenderloin in oil all over.
  9. Place sesame seeds on a separate shallow plate.
  10. Roll pork in the honey mixture, coating well.
  11. Then roll in sesame seeds.
  12. Roast in a shallow pan at 375 degrees for 20-30 mins or until the pork is cooked.
  13. Remove to a platter, slice thinly to serve.

I love to find new ways to cook tenderloin and this one went over big with my guests and I. I served it with Asian Coleslaw and Sesame Noodles and it was excellent!

I marinated 2 pork tenderloins (maybe 2 1/2 lb) in the marinade. In the marinade I used sesame oil. I used dried ginger. It marinated more than 24 hours. I omitted the part to roll it in honey and brown sugar cause my BF was afraid it would be too sweet (also I was lazy LOL) I cooked them with a thermometer inside until it reaches 160 degrees. Then I put the tenderloins on a plate with foil on it to let them rest. The pork was very tender, juicy, perfect cooking. And so tasty. Thanks Kit :) Made for Zaar Star Game.

I really hate to give poor reviews. I used low sodium soy sauce and this was still very salty. I'm sure it is just personal taste, but my family did not care for this dish. I still enjoy trying new recipes and Kitten I really love your recipes. Sorry for the low rating.
