Pork fillet in a Chinese marinade

  • 400–500 g pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 0.5 to 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 3 crushed cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp unrefined cane sugar
  • Salt and pepper
Combine the Hoisin sauce, honey, sesame oil, soy sauce, five spice powder, garlic, sugar, and some freshly ground black pepper. Heat the marinade in a pan for about 5 minutes. Cool. Pour 2/3 of the marinade on the pork fillet and, if possible, let the meat marinate overnight. Save the rest of the marinade. Preheat the oven to 220 °C. Place the pork fillets on a baking tray and put them in the heated oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillet). Baste the meat with the rest of the marinade for a few times during baking. Take the meat out of the oven and let cool. Serve with steamed rice and fresh (stir-fried or steamed) vegetables.
