Roast Pork Loin with Ginger and Sesame


The soy in this dish makes the pork a bit fuller in body and adds another dimension to this dish.

The berry fruit of the Merlot is a refreshing character to add to the sesame and ginger character of the loin.

Serves 2 

Ingredients:

1 cups soy sauce

1 cup water

5 chopped scallions (green onions)

5 cloves garlic

2 tbs chopped fresh ginger

1 tbs brown sugar
