Honey Sesame (Flax) Pork Tenderloin



From The Fountain Avenue Kitchen From The Fountain Avenue Kitchen
Number of Servings: 8


    2 pork tenderloins (about 2 pounds)
    1/3 cup soy sauce
    2 garlic cloves, crushed and roughly chopped
    1 tablespoon grated ginger root (could substitute one rounded teaspoon dry ginger)
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1/4 cup honey
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1/3 cup sesame or flax seeds or a mix of both (plus a bit extra for sprinkling)


1.Mix the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil in a zipper-top bag. (I place it in a bowl so it doesn’t flop over and spill out. I learned that the hard way!)
2.Add the tenderloins, turning to coat, and seal the bag.
3.Refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning a few times if you remember.
4.When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
5.Place the seeds in a shallow bowl. Mix the honey and brown sugar and brush over the tenderloins.
6.You may heat 10-15 seconds in the microwave if the mixture seems too thick to brush on. Roll the tenderloins in the seeds to evenly coat. Place the tenderloins in a lightly greased baking dish and sprinkle with a few more seeds to evenly coat.
7.Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 150 degrees. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
