Because I live in an area where there aren’t many Chinese restaurants, I developed this Asian-inspired starter. A combination of soy and plum sauces, red wine, garlic and ginger create a full-bodied marinade that infuses every bite with wonderful flavor.—Delores Condon, Paynesville, Minnesota

TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons plum sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dry red wine or beef broth
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • Toasted sesame seeds, Chinese-style mustard and additional plum sauce, optional

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning several times. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
Drain and discard marinade. Place pork on a greased rack in a foil-lined roasting pan.
Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with mustard and additional plum sauce if desired. Yield: 10 servings.
