Asian Barbecued Pork Tenderloin

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from Marlene Koch’s book, Fantastic Food with Splenda. She says in its intro, “Hoisin is a thick, sweet, spicy condiment used extensively in Asian cuisine. In addition to being spread on pancakes for mu shu pork, it is used for delicious stir-fry barbecue sauces like this one.” She also offers this tip: “Hoisin is made from soybeans, chilies, garlic, ginger, and sugar. Brands vary quite a bit from one to another. It should be very dark and have a complex flavor. Koon Chun is one preferred brand.” Prep and cook times do not include the marinating time.

Excellent recipe!! Like the other reviewers, I found the pork to be moist, tender and very tasty! We marinated for about 3 hours, then cooked it on the BBQ for about 20 minutes, until the internal temperature was about 145 degrees. We basted the tenderloin with the leftover marinade about 5 minutes before it came off the heat, which gave it a nice shot of flavour just before it landed on our plates. We will definitely be making this one again!
