"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."

Are you making this? 
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup Soy sauce
1/4 cup Honey
2 teaspoons Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Garlic
1 teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon Ginger
1 teaspoon Sesame oil

Original recipe makes 8



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.

Our tips:

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.

I made this recipe using some think cut pork chops and cooked them on a gas grill. This was quite tasty. The char from the grill made the whole piece quite flavorful. A good weeknight meal if you remember to plan to marinate the meat ahead of time.

Good idea to make extra sauce/marinade. Barbecue superb. Cook to 140 degrees internal temp. Was great advice. Came out perfect.
