Asian Pork Tenderloin

Melissa Turner


I love Asian flavors and have been making Asian dishes at home at least once a week for a few years. Once I got over my fear of trying to cook Asian food that is and realized just how simple it really was. Most of the dishes I cook are beef dishes that I have substituted with chicken since I try not to cook with red meat as much as possible. I decided I wanted to start making some pork dishes as well and this is one I came up with.

pork tenderloins (or 3lb loin or shoulder roast)
8 clove
garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp
ginger (minced)
6 Tbsp
cooking sherry (dry)
1 c
hoisin sauce
1 c
plum sauce
1 c
soy sauce
1 c
1/4 c
1 Tbsp
sesame oil
1 Tbsp
red pepper flakes (optional)
2 bunch
green onions (thinly sliced with greens)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven on 375. Trim (remove silverskin)and season tenderloins with salt and pepper. Brown on all sides in olive oil. Set aside.
Heat pan back up and add a bit more olive oil and sear minced garlic and ginger for about 1 minute. Add hoisin, plum sauce, soy sauce, honey, sherry, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes if you like it a bit spicy. Let simmer for at least five minutes. Turn off and stir in onions.
Place tenderloins in baking dish and pour the sauce over them. Cook in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. Let stand a bit before slicing. If using a roast which will require more baking time bake for a bit and pour sauce in when 30 mins of cooking time left as not to burn the sauce.
