Sesame pork

I found a recipe for sesame crusted pork chops with sweet and sour sauce that I decided to adapt for a pork tenderloin. It went well with cous cous to sop up the sauce. I made more sauce than the recipe called for but my family asked that I make more next time!

Sesame crusted pork tenderloin

  • pork tenderloin
  • salt and pepper
  • peanut oil
  • sesame seeds
  • apricot jam
  • soy sauce

Season pork with salt and pepper. Brush with peanut oil and sprinkle generously with sesame seeds. Grill pork on a grill mat for about 15 minutes, turning several times. While pork is cooking, melt apricot jam and soy sauce in a saucepan over low heat. (I used 3 TB of each and everyone wanted more – I think next time I’ll do 5 TB of each. Samantha’s vote was to increase the quantity of the jam.) Slice pork and serve with cous cous and sauce.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
