Asian Pork Tenderloin
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons red food coloring, optional
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
Sesame seeds, toasted
In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; mix well. Remove 1/2 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour the remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add tenderloins. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Place pork on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°, brushing with reserved marinade every 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Cut into thin slices.
