Shop the Sale: Hoisin Pork


I think I may have mentioned recently that I have an affinity for a certain local Chinese-food restaurant. 

Luckily for the establishment and unluckily for my waistline, it’s very close to my house. I’ve been going so often for a bowl of Hot and Sour Soup that, by now, everyone knows my name (cue music to popular ’80s sitcom). 

Being a regular has its perks. 

I went in on Christmas Eve (Hush! Yes, I said Christmas Eve – don’t judge until you’ve tried their soup!) and the proprietor beckoned me over to the edge of the shiny silver counter. He practically shoved a covered plate into my hands. 

“Try this,” he said. 

Without any further urging, I took the offering to my table along with the soup and eggroll. 

I uncovered one of the most delicious pieces of pork I’d ever tasted. 

“Not on menu. Special,” he told me. 

Yes it was. 

I can’t wait to make it at home. 

As my fortune cookie predicted (wink), boneless pork tenderloin is on sale this week at Brookshire’s. Try this today! 

Hoisin Pork
Serves 4 

Ingredients:
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 Tbs sliced green onions
2 Tbs low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs rice wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (1 lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed
Cooking spray
1 Tbs sesame seeds

Directions:
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add pork to bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag once.

Preheat oven to 425° F.

Remove pork from bag, reserving marinade. Place pork on the rack of a broiler pan or roasting pan coated with cooking spray; place rack in oven. Bake at 425° F for 15 minutes. Sprinkle pork with sesame seeds; bake an additional 5 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° F (slightly pink). Place pork on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Cut into (1/2-inch-thick) slices.

Pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 2 minutes); serve with pork.
