Honey-Hoisin Pork Tenderloin

Look for hoisin sauce in the Asian section of your market. Clover honey would work for this pork tenderloin dish if you can't find sage honey. Serve with green salad and mashed potatoes.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and about 2 teaspoons honey mixture)
