Hands-on Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 25 minutes (including marinating)
Serves 4

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 1-pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, ginger, and red pepper. Add the pork and let marinate in the refrigerator, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

Heat oven to 425° F. Heat the vegetable oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade, reserve the marinade. Cook the pork in the the skillet, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skillet to oven and roast until cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, transfer the reserved marinade to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain, if desired.

Slice the pork and serve with the cooked marinade.
