Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. peeled and grated fresh ginger (or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
1 or 2 lb. pork tenderloin
1 lb. fresh asparagus

Directions:
Directions:
Make the marinade by whisking together the first 7 ingredients.

Place the asparagus in a zip lock bag with 1/4 cup of the marinade. Work the bag gently with your fingers to distribute the marinade. Do the same with the pork tenderloin, using a second zip lock bag and 1/4 cup of the marinade. Let the meat and asparagus marinade at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

Add the peanut butter to the reserved 1/2 cup of marinade and whisk until smooth.

Grilling:
Prepare the grill to medium-high and oil the grates. Grill the tenderloin for 3-4 minutes on each side, rotating it a quarter turn at a time, until the internal temperature registers 140 in the center. Remove the meat from the grill and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Meanwhile, grill the asparagus spears for 2 minutes per side or until just tender.

Slice the meat diagonally into 1 - 2 inch slices. Serve with the peanut dipping sauce.
