Roasted Sesame Pork Tenderloin (Char Su)

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tbls packed brown sugar
1 tbls toasted sesame oil
1 tbls grated fresh ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
2 pork tenderloins
1/4 cup sesame seeds

Combine soy, hoisin, honey, brown sugar, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic in large baggie.  Add pork tenderloins and turn to coat evenly.  Marinate for at least 2 hours.  Position a rack in center of oven and preheat to 500 degrees.

Spread sesame seeds on a plate, remove the meat from the marinade, draining off the excess, and roll in the sesame seeds.  Remove to a rack in shallow roasting pan.  Roast the tenderloin until meat reads 150-155 degrees, 20-25 minutes, or until desired doneness.  Let the pork stand, loosely covered with foil, for 5-10 minutes, then slice.

Serve with stir-fried vegetables if desired.
