How to Make Pork Essentials: Tenderloin Matchsticks on Rice


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Cut the pork loin into matchsticks.
  4. Add the pork loin, garlic, honey, vinegar, tamari sauce, mirin, and sesame seeds into a bowl.
  5. Chef’s Note: You can let the pork rest with the other ingredients for about 15 minutes, but it is not necessary.
  6. Add the grapeseed oil, and the sesame oil to a sauté pan over high heat.
  7. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the pork.
  8. Cook over high heat, until most of the liquid has evaporated, and the sauce begins to thicken, about 4 – 6 minutes.
  9. Chef’s Tip: You need to keep an eye on the sauce, because you will have about 30 seconds between a good thickened sauce, and a burned sauce. Once you add the pork, do not leave the pan unattended.
  11. Add the pork matchsticks to a nice bed of warm rice, and sprinkle with a bit of sesame seeds. Enjoy.
  12. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
