"Grill" and "Main Dish" are two of the tags cooks chose for Sesame Pork Tenderloin."This was a very easy recipe and had pretty good flavour. I marinated the pork for half a day and boiled the marinade after for basting and kept some for sauce after the pork was cooked. We did it on the BBQ and it turned out great. We didn't double the sauce and I found it was enough but if you like it saucy you might want to double the sauce. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner." - punkie569

Sesame Pork Tenderloin Preparation
Mix all ingredients except pork. Marinate pork in mix for 2 - 24 hours. Remove and drain marinade. Roll each piece of meat in sesame seeds (coat). Preheat oven to 500 degrees and cook for 20 minutes until pork has an internal temp of 150 to 155. Slice across the grain and serve with fried rice. Drizzle sauce on sliced pork and rice.
Substitue 1 teaspoon molasses and 2 teaspoons plain sugar (I like using turbinado surgar if grilling) for brown sugar. Sure it''s the same thing but swear it tastes better!
Use more sesame seeds than you think you''ll need. Many will fall off during grilling and handling.
This does MUCH better on the grill on medium-high heat. Sear over direct heat and then finish with indirect heat. I like to pull it off the grill at about 145 internal, double wrap with foil and let sit for 20 minutes.
Make extra sauce to use as a baste during cooking.
Add some sriracha sauce to the sauce for a spicy dipping sauce.
