Asian-Style Roast Pork Tenderloin
Hoisin sauce complements any meat or poultry, but has a particular affinity for pork and lamb.
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 pound pork tenderloin
Combine all ingredients except pork. Add pork and marinate, covered and refrigerated, 2 hours or longer.
Preheat over to 400 degrees. Drain pork, reserving marinade. Place on a rack over a roasting pan. Roast 25 - 30 minutes, until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees (the pork should be barely pink inside), turning pork occasionally and basting with reserve marinade. Slice 1/4 inch to serve.
Note: You can substitute a lamb sirloin roast for the pork. Roast until lam is well-browned on the outside but still rare on the inside.
