Grilled Pork Tenderloin with a Soy-Sesame Marinade
2 Pork tenderloin (1lb. each) trimmed
3-4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
5 tablespoons Japanese soy sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
3-4 scallions, chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon crushed roasted sesame seeds
Combine the marinade ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to blend them well. Pour over the meat, and coat well. Cover the dish with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1-1/2 hours or overnight. To prevent toughness, remove the meat from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.
Grill pork over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until done. Transfer pork to a cutting board, let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into 1-inch slices and serve.
