Asian Pork Tenderloin

I wanted something quick and easy but delicious for Joey's birthday dinner. So I grabbed some pork tenderloin from the freezer and threw together a marinade. This was excellent on the BBQ then served on rice with a side salad with an Asian Sesame dressing.

Pepper added by Joey - none to the pork, some to the salad

1 pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 tablespoon sugar
1 minced clove garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 teaspoon five spice powder

1. Mix all the ingredients together and place in a dish.
2. Trim the "silver skin" from the pork tenderloin and place in the dish.
3. Roll the pork tenderloin in the marinade ensuring it is entirely covered.
4. Place in the fridge for 4 hours to allow it to soak up the yumminess.
5. Fire up the BBQ.
6. Grill the pork until it is no longer pink (took mine about 15 minutes).
7. Slice and serve.
