  1. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  2. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  3. 2 teaspoons honey
  4. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  5. Four 6-ounce pork tenderloin pieces, pounded into 1/3-inch-thick steaks (about 5 inches)
  6. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  7. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  8. 2 tablespoons slivered fresh ginger
  9. 1 teaspoon Sriracha or other Asian hot sauce
  10. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. Vegetable oil, for rubbing
  12. 2 cups mung bean sprouts
  13. 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  1. In a medium, shallow dish, combine the soy sauce, garlic, honey and sesame oil. Add the pork tenderloin steaks and coat on both sides. Let stand for 1 hour, turning once.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir the mayonnaise with the scallions, ginger and Sriracha and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Fold the bean sprouts into the mayonnaise mixture. Place the pork steaks on the bottom halves of the buns. Top with the bean sprouts, close the sandwiches and serve.
