This is from For the love of cooking. I do love recipes where you do most of the prep work the night before. This is incredibly flavorful and easy!

Asian Pork Tenderloin

2/3 C low sodium soy sauce
¼ C dark sesame oil
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 T brown sugar
1-2 tsp hot chili sauce
1 T minced peeled fresh ginger, or 1 tsp powdered ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced (divided)
1 ½ lb pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat
Olive oil cooking spray

Combine the first eight ingredients (reserve a few sliced green onions for garnish) in a large zip lock bag, then add the pork. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for 8-24 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Heat a large ovenproof skillet coated with cooking spray over medium high heat. Remove pork from bag, reserving marinade. Add pork to pan, cook 6 minutes, browning on all sides. Place pan in oven, and bake at 425°F for 15 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 155-160°F (medium) or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

Bring reserved marinade to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Cut pork into 1/4" thick slices and drizzle with sauce and the remaining green onions. Great with rice!
