  • 1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed of any fat or silverskin

Preperation Steps
  • For the Marinade: 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/3 cup hoisin sauce, 1/3 cup dry sherry or Chinese wine, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon honey, 3 cloves garlic (minced), 1 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder, 3 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • For the Glaze: 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey warmed, 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • PREPARATION: Put the pork in a zip-top type plastic bag. In a small mixing bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and whisk until blended. Add to the meat and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning several times to distribute marinade evenly.
  • Combine the ingredients for the glaze and set aside.
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Drain the pork and discard the marinade. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees when read on an instant-read meat thermometer. Brush the glaze on all sides of the tenderloin, and continue roasting, turning frequently, until the glaze is set. Transfer the pork to a platter or plates. Let rest for 5 minutes before carving into thin slices.
  • Serve hot, warm, or cold. Leftovers make great fried rice.
