Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 2tbspsoy sauce
  • 2tbsplight brown sugar
  • 1tbspfresh ginger,peeled and minced
  • 2tspdark Asian sesame oil
  • 2clovegarlic
  • ¼tsphot red pepper flakes,crushed
  • 2pork tenderloins
  • 1scallion,white and green parts


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Line a small roasting pan with aluminum foil and lightly oil the foil. This is important, because the glaze has a high sugar content and it will scorch during roasting.

  2. Meanwhile, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and hot pepper flakes in a self-sealing plastic bag and mix to dissolve the sugar. Add the pork tenderloins and close the bag.

  3. Toss the meat in the bag to coat it with the marinade. Let stand at room temperature while the oven heats.

  4. Remove the pork tenderloins from the marinade, and place on the baking sheet. Drizzle about half of the marinade over the pork. Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and add 2 tablespoons water; set aside.

  5. Roast for 15 minutes. Baste the pork with the marinade in the roasting pan. Continue roasting for 25 more minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the meat reads 150 to 155 degrees F.

  6. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes.

  7. While the pork is resting, bring the reserved marinade in the saucepan to a boil over high heat. Cut the roast pork crosswise on a slight diagonal into thin slices, and arrange overlapping slices of the pork on a platter.

  8. Drizzle the hot marinade over the pork, sprinkle with the scallion, and serve immediately.
