An Asian marinade flavors these sweet/salty pork tenderloins, which roast in the oven for 45 minutes.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 tablespoons minced onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 pound pork tenderloin
In a medium dish or bowl, mix together soy sauce, sugar, onion, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, and oil. Add pork, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 3 hours, turning and basting often.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade, and transfer to a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes. Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices.
While the meat is roasting, boil reserved marinade for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with pork strips.
