photo by manushag
- Ready In:
- 1hr 10mins
- 3 lbs pork loin
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup apricot jam or 1/2 cup peach jam
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger, fresh
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄2 - 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sherry wine
- 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 -2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons ketchup (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
- Slice pork into 4 slabs and place in a large zip lock bag.
- Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour half into zip bag with the meat, smoosh around and allow to marinate for 1/2 to 4 hours.
- Pour the rest of the glaze into a small saucepan and cook until thickened.
- Sear meat on a grill or in a hot grill pan on the stove about 5 minutes per side.
- I added the liquid smoke to the glaze, because I cooked mine on the stove top in the grill pan.
- Brush both sides of meat with glaze and turn, cooking until no pink shows.
- Continue brushing with glaze until done.
- In the stovetop grill pan, I poured all the glaze into the pan and turned the meat every couple of minutes to coat completely, and cooked until no pink showed in the meat. This only takes a couple of minutes, since the meat is thin.
- Serve with fried rice and broccoli.

This looks like a lot of ingredients, but most were already in my pantry, with the exception of the peach jam and the meat. For the meat, I just bought boneless pork chops, and then let everything marinade all day. These were flavorful and very tender. My husband even liked it so much, he had seconds. Definitely a keeper. We could even add some heat to this recipe with a ghost pepper or two, and still not lose the flavor of the marinade.
