Place tenderloin in self-sealing bag; add soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil; seal bag and toss to mix thoroughly. Refrigerate 2-24 hours.

Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove tenderloin from marinade, discarding marinade. On shallow plate mix together honey and brown sugar; plate sesame seed on another plate. Roll tenderloin in honey mixture to coat evenly, then roll in sesame seed.
