  1. Place tenderloins in a shallow glass dish. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sherry, black bean sauce, ginger, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, and five-spice powder. Pour marinade over pork, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Remove tenderloins from refrigerator while the oven preheats.
  3. Bake pork in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or to desired doneness. Let stand for 10 minutes, and then slice diagonally into thin slices.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I used the sauce to marinate pieces of pork for a couple of hours and then used it in a stir fry. The black bean sauce helps balance the sweetness of the hoisin sauce. A good combination of flav...

Absolutely Awesome! We love this. I will usually sear it on the grill for that crispy exterior and smokey flavor and then finish it up in the oven.

This recipe is very easy and tasty. the flavours were great. I served with fried rice and chopped up leftover pork into the rice the next day.

Excellent - served this with stir fried veg, garlic roast potato and egg fried rice.
