PORK LOIN should not be confused with pork loin. The loin is a long, thin piece of meat, about 2″ in diameter and about 14″ long (the pork loin is much thicker, about 4″ in diameter). You want the longest and thinnest pork loin for this recipe.

TERIYAKI SAUCE is best when it is homemade, it has more flavor. The homemade version contains orange juice or pineapple juice, fresh ginger and garlic and some brown sugar. We use soy sauce in this recipe that adds flavor and tenderizes the meat.

If you’re in a pinch, you can certainly use a ready-made sauce, try to choose one that has a thicker consistency like barbecue sauce. If I use the shopped, I like to add some garlic, orange zest or juice and a little sesame oil to the bottled sauce for more flavor.

SESAME OIL Don’t skip or substitute sesame oil if possible, as it has a unique nutty flavor that is beautiful in this recipe.
