I love Asian flavors and have been making Asian dishes at home at least once a week for a few years. Once I got over my fear of trying to cook Asian food that is and realized just how simple it really was. Most of the dishes I cook are beef dishes that I have substituted with chicken since I try not to cook with red meat as much as possible. I decided I wanted to start making some pork dishes as well and this is one I came up with.

Place tenderloins in baking dish and pour the sauce over them. Cook in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. Let stand a bit before slicing. If using a roast which will require more baking time bake for a bit and pour sauce in when 30 mins of cooking time left as not to burn the sauce.
