This is called Red Sesame Pork because the two main flavors in the sauce for this are red wine and sesame oil. This is a very simple dish to make, and it has classic oriental flavors.
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp red wine
2 tsp sesame oil
crushed black pepper
pork tenderloin (anywhere from 1-2 pounds)
First thing to do is to either heat a pan on the stove to medium heat, or to start a charcoal grill. Season the outside of the pork loin with salt and pepper. Once the grilling surface is ready, you'll want to place the pork onto the heat. While the pork is starting to cook, you'll want to mix together all of the sauce ingredients. Use either a basting brush or spoon to cover the pork in sauce. After about 4 minutes on the grill, you'll want to rotate the pork 90 degrees, and baste again with the sauce. You'll want to repeat that step roughly every 4 minutes to ensure that the entire pork gets glazed, and so that the caramelized glaze does not burn and turn bitter. Using a meat thermometer, continue rotating the pork until the internal temperature reads that it is done. Enjoy!
