I recently rediscovered this recipe from years gone by. It is easy to make and delicious. Prep time includes 1 hour to marinate. Adapted from the Joy of Woking.
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon white wine
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 2 lbs boneless lean pork
- Combine all ingredients (except the pork) in a bowl large enough for the pork and set aside.
- Trim pork to remove visible fat.
- Slice into thin (1/8") slices.
- Add pork to sauce and stir to cover meat.
- Marinate at least 1 hour, but can sit in fridge overnight.
- Place pork with its marinade in an ovenproof dish.
- Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- Tip: sauce is very good. Consider making extra and serve with rice.
I tried this tonight when I found myself with a pork loin and nothing to do with it. It was very easy and very delicious! Even my two year old loved it. I had everything on hand to make it except the five-spice and I added a bit of chili sauce to it. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
The taste and aroma of this dish is GREAT! Finding this recipe here to make was my fate! I used a combination of hoisin sauce and vanilla yogurt with scallion, as wanted to do! There is NOTHING wrong with this recipe, probably would not make again, true! PLEASE don't let this review throw you so you don't try! Just read previous reviews and you will know why! :) THANKS!
This was so good! I had been wanting something like this for a while and the flavour was just like it was from a Chinese restaurant. I made it with pork loin. There are only 2 of us so I cut the meat in half but made it with the same amount of sauce so we would have sauce to spare and pour over the rice. I will be making this again for sure!
