GRILLED PORK TENDERLOIN W/ HOISIN- SESAME SAUCE
1 cup hoisin sauce
3 Tbs honey
2 Tbs dried sherry
1 tsp sesame oil
2 large pork tenderloins (2 lbs.)
2 Tbs chopped cilantro
1. Combine hoisin sauce, honey, sherry and sesame oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
2. Trim pork tenderloins of all fat and silverskin. Butterfly pork by cutting down the center lengthwise to within ¾” of the bottom. Press pork open and flatten. Brush all over with 1/3 of the sauce. Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours.
3. Preheat grill, and make sure it is well greased. Remove pork from refrigerator and let stand 15 minutes. Grill about 6 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reached 155-160 degrees. Let pork stand 5 minutes while reheating leftover sauce. Serve pork drizzled with sauce and sprinkled with cilantro.
*Do not put hot marinade on raw meat or you will cook it.
**To bake this tenderloin, 375 for 25-30 minutes. Brush 1/2 of marinade on top in beginning and 1/2 on top when you take it out.
***Use peanut or vegetable oil on the grill only- not cooking spray. You’ll have better success with not burning your meats.
