Sesame Pork Appetizers

A recipe provided by the National Pork Producers Council

Makes 6 servings

  • 1-1/2 lbs. pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 1 whole green onion, finely chopped
  • Spinach leaves

In a dish large enough to hold the tenderloin, combine the sherry and soy sauce. Add the pork. Let marinate, 1-2 hours, turning several times. Remove the tenderloin. Spread the honey on a plate. Roll the pork in honey, then in sesame seeds. Place the tenderloin in a roast pan, roast at 350°F for 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 155°F. Let stand 5 minutes, then slice thinly on the diagonal. Combine all remaining ingredients for dipping sauce. Place in a bowl in the center of a serving platter. Surround the bowl with the spinach leaves. Arrange pork slices on top.
