Ingredients and Preparation

Pork tenderloin, visible fat removed12 ounces
Low sodium soy sauce ¼ cup
Garlic cloves, minced 2
Sesame oil 1 teaspoon
Brown sugar 1 tablespoon
Honey 2 tablespoons
Sesame seeds2 tablespoons
  1. Directions
  2. Combine pork, soy sauce, garlic, and sesame oil in a resealable plastic bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours, turning a few times.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375ÀöF.
  4. Remove pork from marinade and pat dry. Combine the brown sugar and honey and then rub over the pork. Place sesame seeds in a shallow plate and then roll the pork in the seeds until well-covered.
  5. Place meat in baking dish and roast in the oven. Note that during cooking, the honey-sugar mixture will drip into the pan and burn, but the pork will not. For easier clean-up, line the baking dish with foil before placing the pork on it.
  6. Roast for 40-55 minutes, or until the pork reaches 160ÀöF. You can remove the pork when it’s at 155ÀöF; it will continue to cook slightly once out of the oven, raising the temperature to 160ÀöF, but keep the thermometer in to monitor it’s temperature status. Slice thinly and serve.

5 lean meats; 1 starch
