Seasoning Pork Roast Recipes With Pork Chops

Sesame Pork Roast Ingredients:

1 pork tenderloin, lean (around 12 to 14 ounce piece)
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
½ teaspoon Dijon style mustard
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/8 cup chili sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ginger or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce, reduced sodium
½ green onion or scallion, chopped finely
1/8 cup light sour cream, fat free
A dash of salt
1½ cup baby spinach


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degree Fahrenheit. Stir in the teriyaki sauce, chili sauce, ginger and garlic in a small bowl for basting sauce.
  2. On a rack of a shallow roasting pan place pork tenderloin and brush some prepared basting sauce over the tenderloin. Roast the tenderloin over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes roasting brush additional basting sauce over the tenderloins and sprinkle them with sesame seeds. Discard the remaining basting sauce, if any. Insert an oven going thermometer in the thickest part of the tenderloin and place the tenderloin again in the oven. Roast for another 15 to 20 minutes or till the instant read thermometer inserted in the tenderloin registers 160 degree Fahrenheit.
  4. Prepare mustard sauce meanwhile. Mix sour cream along with finely chopped green onion, salt and Dijon style mustard. Stir well and sprinkle additional green onions on the top if desired.
  5. Place baby spinach over a serving plate before serving the tenderloins. Place the roasted tenderloin over the spinach and serve with the prepared mustard sauce. It serves two.
