  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root grated
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds


Place tenderloin in self-sealing bag; add soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil; seal bag and toss to mix thoroughly. Refrigerate 2-24 hours.

Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove tenderloin from marinade, discarding marinade. On shallow plate mix together honey and brown sugar; plate sesame seed on another plate. Roll tenderloin in honey mixture to coat evenly, then roll in sesame seed. Place in shallow pan and roast for 20-27 minutes, until internal temperature reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.  Slice to serve.
