  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 scallions white and green parts
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin trimmed
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


  • Preheat the grill to high heat.
  • Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Pour ¾ of the mixture into a large zip-top plastic bag; reserve remaining mixture. Add pork to bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 45 minutes or up to overnight, turning bag occasionally. If you marinate for 30 minutes or less, keep the pork out at room temperature.
  • Remove pork from bag and pat dry with a paper towel; discard marinade. Grill pork on medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side.
  • Grill until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink) or 165 (medium).
  • Let pork rest for 5 minutes. Cut into thin slices and drizzle with the remaining honey mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve warm.
