Roasted Sesame Pork Tenderloin

Submitted by: CHEFSOPHIE

Introduction

This is a leaner version of those glistening strips of pork, called car su, displayed in shops throughout Chinatown. This tasty crunchy meat can be eaten hot or at room temperature. Serve leftovers on a bed of stir-fried vegetables.

It should be noted all ingredients are considered, but most of the marinade is discarded before cooking.
