Honey-Hoisin Pork Tenderloin

A quick and easy way to make Asian-style pork. It was not only devoured by Abe, but Jimi had 2 helpings.

I served it with garlic mashed potatoes and green peas.

Recipe (and picture) are from Cooking Light, which means that it's easy on the waistline (it's only 195 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving!).


Honey-Hoisin Pork Tenderloin
Serves 4

2  tablespoons  sliced green onions
2  tablespoons  hoisin sauce
2  tablespoons  low-sodium soy sauce
2  tablespoons  sage honey
1  tablespoon  hot water
2  garlic cloves, minced
1  (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/4  teaspoon  salt
Cooking spray
1/2  teaspoon  sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Pour 1/4 cup honey mixture into a large zip-top plastic bag; reserve remaining honey mixture. Add pork to bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning bag occasionally.

Remove pork from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle pork with salt. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork; cook 2 minutes, browning on all sides. Brush 1 tablespoon reserved honey mixture over pork; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place skillet in oven. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink) or until desired degree of doneness.

Place pork on a platter; let stand 5 minutes. Cut pork across the grain into thin slices. Drizzle with the remaining honey mixture.
