Barbecued Pork Appetizer

Whenever I am asked to bring an appetizer to a party I like to bring homemade Chinese barbecued pork because it always is a hit and it always disappears. My dad used to complain that it was red like at the restaurant (he somehow always managed to eat it though) and if you want it to be red just add food coloring. since it tastes the same I never did but it is easy to do.
Chinese Barbecued Pork

1 teaspoon five spice powder
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon plum jam
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 inch piece of fresh gingerroot
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco, regular, jalapeno or smoky chipotle
1/2 cup  soy sauce
1/4 cup sherry
2 pounds boneless pork tenderloin
1. Mix all ingredients and marinate pork for 48 hours, turning meat over every 12 hours.
2. Roast pork in oven for about an hour at 325 until meat is fully cooked.
3. Cool and thinly slice and serve with hot mustard and sesame seeds to dip it in.
