Sesame Pork with Garlic Cream Sauce


The sesame pork was one of these ‘eh..’ recipes. I didn’t mind it, it was different and interesting. It didn’t grab my husband’s fancy. The garlic cream sauce was exceptional though, as you can see it was thick and clingy and all I could think of is how good this would be in a hot dog maybe with a bit of onion incorporated. I think the pork could use a bit more flavouring, which might make it more interesting still, a marinade or an addition of herbs to the sesame seeds? Anyway it is worth playing around with if you have the time. Meanwhile log the garlic sauce recipe away somewhere and try it on a hot dog, is my advice.

Sesame Pork with Garlic Cream Sauce
6 servings

700g pork tenderloin or pork steaks
2 tablespoons  vegetable oil
1/4  cup  sesame seed

Garlic Cream Sauce
1 tablespoon  butter
2 cloves  garlic — finely chopped
225g package  cream cheese — cut into cubes
1/3  cup  milk
1 tablespoon  chopped fresh chives

Cut pork tenderloin crosswise into 12 slices. Brush pork with oil; coat with sesame seed.
Fry in non-stick pan or grill pork 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center.
While pork is grilling, prepare Garlic Cream Sauce. Serve sauce with pork.

Garlic Cream Sauce
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic in butter about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally; until golden; reduce heat to low.
Add cream cheese and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and hot. Sprinkle with chives. Serve warm. About 2/3 cup.

  1. I’ve made plenty of “eh” recipes. Not on purpose, mind you, but they just turned out that way. But I always enjoy the process of making them and trying something new. At least the garlic cream sauce was pretty good!

    • Yeah, kind of disappointing when they don’t live up to your idea of what they will be like but its always good to try new things. Loving that garlic sauce though, what a winner that was! I guess half a recipe is better than nothing 🙂
