OMG! Totally loved this recipe! I used only one tenderloin as it was for just two of us but I didn't reduce the marinade ingredients & we marinated it overnight. The color of the pork is just gorgeous! But on top of that it's extremely moist & tender. It was a little sweeter than we had expected, but that may just be due to only using one tenderloin, & in no way was it any reason to not clean our plates! :) We served it with a vegetable lo mein & forced ourselves to save some of the pork for later. As soon as it was chilled we tried it with Chinese hot mustard & sesame seeds & it was delish! I will proudly serve this recipe at our next party. Thanks for sharing, Debbie!

Made this tonight and served it with Spinach Stir Fry With Garlic#351052, Ginger Jasmine Rice#379146, and Asian Sesame Roasted Green Beans#359058. I did cut it in half being only DH and I ate but I will have enough for stir fry. The meat came out moist and such a good flavor. Thank you and I will add this to my menus.

Substitute firm tofu for pork, and it was good! And you only have to bake for 20 mins. Seriously, anyone who knows how pigs are raised would NOT eat pork ever again, for health and cruelty reasons.
I leave out the food coloring, use injecto to put in center of meat. I usually leave it for 8 hours or more. Instead of baking it I put it on a charcoal grill, keep it about 250, I use the left over marinade to baste frequently, turning about every five to ten minutes and baste again. Keep turning n baste. I have found that a 1/4 cup of vodka makes it surprisingly tender, the alchohal evaporates when u grill it. When I take it off the grill I let stand for 15 minutes. I slant cut it in about 1/8 inch slices. I use Chinese hot mustard paste and catchup to taste, put in frig for an hour or so, brings out the the heat in the paste, that way u can add more if not hot enough. This recipe has been out for about 20 yrs. try it the grill gives it a unique taste, I've never baked this stuff in 20 yrs. just try it I promise it's awesome
Terrible! Any sauce evaporated in the oven. Do not even try this recipe. There is nearly no flavor. I could have baked pork in the oven without the marinade and got the same result. Tell me what is Chinese about this? The Soy sauce? I can't even imagine anyone giving this more than 1 star. If I could have given it 0 stars I would. Perhaps the ratings are coming from people who have never tasted real Chinese food and caused Chinese restaurants to dumb down to American tastes. But, whatever, don't mistake this for Chinese cooking. It is not Chinese cooking.
super easy tastes better than some of the restaurants ive eaten in
