So easy and yummy! I did do a few minor changes. First of all I soaked the tenderloin in a simple sugar/salt/water brine for about 8 hours. I used a store bought sesame ginger dressing and coleslaw mixture (added extra carrots, cilantro, and green onions). I also grilled the tenderloin. So delicious! The wasabi-soy almonds were delicious with it! I served it with some couscous.
