|Recipe from Green Tea:
Crunchy Sesame Seed-Crusted Pork
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons Asian hot chile paste
Two 12-ounce pork tenderloins
1 teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns
1 tablespoon (4 grams)
1 tablespoon brown sesame seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
Use small pork tenderloins for this recipe, and roast them quickly at a high temperature to keep them tender and juicy. Rolling the cooked pork in the spice mixture after taking it out of the oven keeps the coating crunchy.
