Honey Sesame Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is from the Worldwide Ward Cookbook and it's great. I love the flavor and pork tenderloins are so easy to make. I served it with homemade applesauce and funeral potatoes and dinner was a hit.

Honey Sesame Pork Tenderloin

1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated or 1 teaspoon dry ginger
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 - 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
sesame seeds

Combine soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil in a large plastic bag. Add tenderloin. Marinate at least 2 hours. Combine honey and brown sugar in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Remove tenderloin from marinade and pat dry with a paper towel. Roll tenderloin in honey mixture and then roll in sesame seeds. Roast in a shallow pan at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
