Course: Main Course
- 1 2 lb pork tenderloin (or enough to serve 4)
- ½ cup soy sauce reduced sodium
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger minced
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup honey
- 3 tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds toasted
Combine soy sauce, olive oil, ginger and garlic and mix well. In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine the marinade with the tenderloin. Marinate for 4 hours to overnight, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 425F. Combine honey, brown sugar, sriracha and hot pepper flakes. Remove tenderloin from the marinade and arrange in a baking dish. Brush with honey/sriracha mixture and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until internal temperature of pork reaches 145 F or 63 C. Let pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
Be sure to line your baking pan as the glaze sets when it cools and becomes difficult to clean.
This recipe is mildly spicy as written. If you like it spicy spicy, increase the sriracha up to 3 more tbsp, and increase the red pepper flakes.
Make sure to spoon some of the glaze from the bottom of the pan over the pork, don't let any of it go to waste!
