I made this as a marinade for pork chops and it came out great. Thank you for sharing I think this one is going to become a regular.
First, let me say that I cooked this for one, and used a 6 oz piece of pork tenderloin. I reduced the other ingredients accordingly. Since I reduced the size of the tenderloin, I felt sure that mine would be cooked to perfection in 15 minutes, but it was still raw, and only registered 145 degrees. So it took a bit longer to cook. However, the taste is divine! Love the sauce! Really enjoyed the glazed baked onto the tenderloin, and I'd of been happy with that. The extra sauce was a bonus, and I wish I'd cooked some rice or orzo to help soak it up.
Amazing sauce, great authentic flavour, thanks! I made a Chinese pork stir fry with it. I didn't use hoisin and substituted ginger crushed in the garlic mincer. Because I cooked less meat, I used one spoon of honey, one of brown sugar, and one heaping teaspoon of five-spice and found it perfectly sweet enough. Served with rice, beansprouts, and mixed veg for a real pick-me-up dinner.
I thought I had a jar of five-spice from Penzeys but could not find it. I had already taken the meat out and the 1st 5 ingredients when I could not find the spice. Making a Five-Spice recipe from zaar, I went ahead and made this. Boy was it good!!! DH who is not a sauce person, took a little more of the sauce to put on his tenderloin slices. I'll be making this again since it is really fast and easy. I had the loin roast and put it in the oven for 1 hour at 375 degrees. When I make this the next time I'll only use 1 teaspoon of five-spice and increase it later if I need to. Made for *ZWT 6* I'm on Team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*
This was so flavourful but not overpowering at all. I grilled my tenderloin right on the barbecue and it was so tender. The sauce is delicious and smells wonderful! We had this with Sesame Portobello Mushrooms and Bacon Garlic Fried Rice. Made for ZWT6. Thanks Boomette! :)
Wonderful Boomie, just wonderful. My house smelled incredible while this was baking. I followed your recipe exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The pork was quick and very easy to make, with outstanding results. The flavor was out of this world and the pork was perfectly cooked. The sauce was wonderful, just full of flavor, we didn't find it overly sweet. I make my own 5 spice powder and used it here, what a treat. I will be making this dish again. Thanks for being such a great pac baby. :)
I thought this was a tad too sweet for my liking, but everyone else in my family really enjoyed this. This made a great quick and easy dinner and I plan on using this sauce recipe for other kinds of meats too!
This was my first time ever buying and using hoisin sauce or five spice powder for that matter. My dad complained of it being too sweet, but he does that for everything. No verdict yet from dbf, hes not feeling well and didn't eat but I really enjoyed this. I used bone in pork chops and doubled the sauce ingredients. I coated each side and cooked at 375 for 10 minutes each side, then brushed another coat on and threw under the broiler for 5 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
Awesome recipe. We really enjoyed the flavor. I cut this down to serve 2 and used the upper end of the five-spice powder. My loin took about 30 mins to cook. It was thick on one end and thin on the other. I saved some clean up by mixing everything in the saucepan before basting the tenderloin. Very tasty indeed. Thanks for posting.
We used 2 pork fillets weighing 400 grams each (7/8lb or 14oz). The main distractor for us was that it was too sweet (would definately cut back on the honey for us) but the big up factor was that it was a quick easy dish to make and was reasonably enjoyed by the family who have very diverse tastes. Thank you Boomette, made for 123 Hit Wonders.
