Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Marinade Time: 30 minutes to 8 hours | Cook Time: 35 minutes


  • 1 large pork tenderloin
  • 177ml soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. of liquid honey
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 30ml cup of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 43g of sesame seeds


  1. In a non-reactive dish, or self-seal food bag, combine the soy sauce, honey, oil, rice wine vinegar and garlic. Marinate your tenderloin in this mixture up to 8 hours in advance of cooking.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium high, or 180°C.
  3. Remove the tenderloin from the marinade. Roll the tenderloin in the sesame seeds to coat.
  4. Grill roast the tenderloin, using indirect cooking, for about 35 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 73°C.
  5. Remove the meat from the grill and let it rest under a tent of tin foil for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. If you wish to use the marinade as a sauce, pour it into a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer until the liquid has reduced and thickened.
  7. Serve with rice and stir fried vegetables.

Can be cooked on gas or charcoal BBQ, provided it is cooked over an indirect heat, the earlier you can prepare the marinade the better with this one!
