    I love this recipe. Being Asian, I definitely savored the flavor. The sesame oil and seeds made it more tasty. My hubby loved it too! :)

    The flavor of this recipe is great and the pork was tender and moist. Definitely will make this again.

    Wonderful taste! I cooked the tenderloin in my slowcooker and it was great! I definitely recommend the reduced-sodium soy sauce. I only had regular, and it came out a bit too salty. I'll correct my mistake next time. Great recipe!!
