Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut pork lengthwise into long pieces, about 2 1/2 inches thick. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ketchup, sherry, garlic, salt, 5 spice powder, and brown sugar. Mix to blend well. Add pork and turn the meat to coat well. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours. Preheat oven to 350*. Place pork strips on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast in oven until pork is cooked through and tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning often and basting every 15 minutes with marinade. Discard any leftover marinade. For a tradional charred look, brown pork briefly, under a preheated broiler. Note: If using food color, add a few drops to marinade before adding pork.
