Sesame Pork Appetizers

Lynette !


Great appetizer! You can serve with fancy toothpicks or let your guests pick up the tenderloin with the spinach leaves. This appetizer is nice in that it is in the oven for a while so you can get other things done for your party. Prep time does not include marinating time!

2 (3/4 lb)
pork tenderloin
1/2 c
dry sherry
1 Tbsp

1/2 c
1/2 c

1/3 c
soy sauce
green onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp
