Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, smashed
  • 12 ounces green beans, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry or shaoxing wine
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish, optional
  • Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish, optional
  • Steamed rice, for serving, if desired

Directions

Trim excess fat and silverskin from tenderloin. Cut into 1-inch pieces, pat with paper towels, rub with some sesame oil, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place a medium skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon sesame oil. When oil shimmers, add pork and cook until browned and cooked partially, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Remove pork to a plate, return skillet to stove, and add garlic. When garlic is fragrant, add green beans and stir occasionally until browned, about 3 minutes. Add sherry and hoisin, stir to combine, and cook until beans are tender and sauce is reduced slightly and sherry smell is cooked off, about 4 minutes. Return pork to pot, turn to coat in sauce, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions, if using, and serve over rice.
