Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

This is a very easy no fuss dish to make and it is certainly company worthy.
It always goes over very well.

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger, or 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  1. Combine first five ingredients in a plastic bag.
  2. Marinate at least 2 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Remove the pork and dry well with paper towels.
  4. Combine the honey, brown sugar in a plate and roll the pork in this mixture.
  5. Roll in sesame seeds.
  6. Bake at a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Pork is done when it reaches 160F with a meat thermometer, for medium, and 170 for well done.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest covered for 10 minutes.
  8. Slice thinly and serve.
Serves about 6-8 people.

  10. We served this for dinner tonight and the Tenderloin was EXCELLENT! It's a good thing we marinated and cooked two of them, otherwise we wouldn't have had any leftovers at all for sandwiches or to toss into a veggie stir-fry in a few days.
