Whenever we go out for Asian food, I am immediately drawn to anything with sesame flavors. Unfortunately aside from sesame crusted tuna, everything else is usually deep fried or covered in a sweet sugary sauce. Luckily a few weeks back, I came upon a special one night for a sesame crusted pork dish and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked pork, marinated in soy and garlic, and covered in sesame seeds. Inspired by this dish, I created this simple sesame crusted pork tenderloin that cooks up in about 25 minutes. It's a delicious weeknight dinner and the leftovers make delicious salads, wraps, and Asian tacos.
