This is a great, easy, and delicious pork tenderloin recipe that's made with a simple marinade of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger and then cooked with a sweet and savory crust of honey and sesame seeds. As long as you can remember to marinate the pork ahead of time (although one hour will suffice), it comes together in under 30 minutes and is a fun twist on dinner that both parents and kids will love.
Additionally, the leftovers are delicious in salad or chopped up for Asian style tacos with cabbage, mandarin orange, and Sriracha. If you want to use leftovers, you may need to cook more than one pork tenderloin since it can be hard to find larger ones. This recipe also works great for chicken breast tenderloins if you aren't a fan or pork. Just be careful about the cooking time to make sure they don't overcook.
Side Dish Ideas: This dish goes great with brown rice or quinoa and some steamed veggies. If you are looking for something a little more exciting, consider garlic cilantro brown rice, cabbage fried rice, sesame sugar snap peas, cauliflower fried rice, spaghetti squash with edamame, or Asian stir-fried vegetables.
