I received this recipe from my daughter. We were having guests for dinner one night and I thought this entree would be the perfect start in planning the menu.

    While this was delicious, I thought it tasted more like an Asian grilled tenderloin than honey. The sesame and soy overwhelmed the honey. It was not as sweet as I thought it would be.
