Chinese five spice, plum sauce and garlic make a succulent marinade that offers a hint of sweetness with each bite.  You can bake this in the oven, or fire up your grill – the weather’s just about right for it!

Chinese 5 Spice Pork Loin

Preheat oven to 400°
Rub 2 pounds Pork Tenderloin with a mixture of:
1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Chinese 5 Spice
In large oven-proof skillet over med-high heat with some oil sear all sides of the pork about 5-8 min.

Mix together in separate bowl then add to pork:
1/3 Cup Plum Sauce
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 Tbsp Fresh Ginger
1 Tbsp Pineapple Juice
1 tsp Sambel Olek
Place in oven and roast for 20-30 min or until internal temp of pork is 140°.

Serve with Jasmine Rice that’s been enhanced with:
1 Tbsp Fresh Minced Ginger
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

    I like the Asian blend of flavors as a change of pace from barbecue sauce.
