Recipe Ingredients:

2 pork tenderloins (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds total), trimmed of silver skin
Vegetable oil for brushing

1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup plum sauce
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Marinade: In small bowl combine all marinade ingredients. Stir thoroughly to blend. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 1 week. Makes about 3/4 cup.
  2. Place tenderloins in a 1 gallon resealable plastic bag or shallow baking pan. Coat all sides of pork with marinade. Seal bag or cover pan. Refrigerate and marinate 2 to 4 hours. Turn bag or pork occasionally to coat all sides. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  3. Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas or electric grill on medium. Brush the grill grate with vegetable oil. Place pork directly over medium fire. Cover grill and cook pork for about 6 to 8 minutes Turn and cover again. Cook another 8 to 10 minutes, or until meat is slightly pink in the center, or an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F (62.7°C) when inserted into the tenderloin's thickest part. Remove tenderloins, tent with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes
  4. Cut the pork into 1-inch thick slices, arrange on a plate and serve immediately.
