Sesame Crusted Pork Tenderloin

This sounds so hard, but it's not, it was very easy. Pork tenderloin is a fabulous tasting meat, lean and cooks in a bout a half an hour. I had a limited amount of time to cook, and this is what I made. I didn't give it a chance to marinate, next time I would do that..this time I just rolled it in the liquid, then in the sesame seeds.

I also do not have proportions right now, I just threw things in and tasted it until I liked it.

Sesame Crusted pork Tenderloin
soy sauce
brown sugar
toasted sesame oil
minced ginger and garlic
blackened sesame seeds or regular

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Mix all the ingredients, except sesame seeds, to taste. Marinate pork for an hour, I would say no longer than 4 or 5, if you have the time, otherwise roll in liquid to coat. Pour sesame seeds on dish and roll the tenderloin in the seeds.

Put in oven and roast for about 25 minutes...internal temperature should read 150 to 155 degrees. Let meat sit about 10 minutes, then serve.

Navy Boy (my husband) said that this was the best pork he ever ate. I hope you enjoy it too!

MMMMMM....I've never had the nerve to do any kind of tenderloin. That looks so good, next time I hit my butcher shop I may look for one! I love stuff with asian flair like that. I'm going to try that Taste of Thai rice too. I know my regular grocery store carries it.

I read about your spring day, I, too have those wistful desires when I think about the things I can never have again. And just when I think, "Well, maybe I'll challenge the gluten, maybe it's not that after all", I end up accidentally glutening myself with something and get REALLY REALLY sick.

Happened this week. We've been grilling out for over a week now, 4 or 5 times. I just found out that the company who makes the charcoal we use, uses wheat as a binder. Finally explained why I've been so sick this last week or so. Sigh. Guess we'll buy a gas grill. Poor hubby.

Anyway....glad to see you posting again. I finally posted today too! :D

I have NEVER made one. It is so hard to find one that is not already in the marinade. Sounds delicious!
