Chinese BBQ Pork
- 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp chinese five spice
- 1.5 tbsp soya sauce
- 1 tsp oyster sauce
- 1.5 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 2.5 tbsp honey
- 3/4 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 lbs pork tenderloin
1. Set pork aside and combine all ingredients into a sauce pan (reserve 1 tablespoon of honey for later). Heat and bring to simmer for just 30 seconds and then set aside to cool.
2. Place the pork and the marinade in a ziplock bag, remove as much air as possible, then massage it so the marinade is all over the pork. Place in the fridge and marinate for at least 3 hours, preferable overnight (up to 24 hours)
1. Take the pork out of the fridge and bring it to room temperature.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment paper
3. Remove pork from marinade, save the marinade.
4. Mix one tablespoon of honey into the marinade.
5. Place the pork on the rack and tuck the thin end of the tenderloin underneath so the whole piece is roughly the same thickness.
6. Roast for 25 minutes or until internal temperature is 145-160F. Around half way through roasting baste generously with the reserved marinade. Dab it on so you get as much marinade on the pork as possible.
7. When the pork is cooked switch the oven to the boiler setting. Baste the pork generously with remaining marinade, again dab it on. Then broil the pork until it is nicely charred, and caramelised - around 2-3 minutes. Baste at least twice during this process.
8. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
9. Serve with assorted vegetables.
