Andrea's Asian Pork Tenderloin


TGIF! Happy Friday everyone... Hope you had a good week and are having better weather than us snowy Calgarians *grumble*
I thought I would blog one of my favorite recipes that I make for dinner parties or any night really.. The longer this pork tenderloin marinates, the better but you can even marinate for just one hour.

Pork tenderloin is one of the cheapest meats you can buy yet it is so tender and can be stuffed, BBQed, grilled or baked. Super easy and always a crowd favorite.

First take a pork tenderloin (literally anywhere from $3-7 at your local grocery store... I have nicknamed them "pork penis" as that is what they sort of look like... HAHAHA)
Marinade the pork in the following for at least one hour or up to two days:

1 cup hoisin sauce
4 cloves garlic, pressed
3 Tbs. freshly grated ginger *great tip- instead of powdered ginger buy a piece of root ginger (so cheap too!) and freeze.. you can then grate with a micro-plane and don't even need to peel- just use when needed from the freezer
1 cup soya sauce

2 Tbs. Sesame oil
2 Tbs. Oyster Sauce

Mix well and marinate entire tenderloin OR cut into chunks for kebabs (my FAV! See below photo... layer with red onion, red pepper, mushrooms, or even mango or peaches) Reserve some of the marinade in a separate container to baste meat with while BBQing... This dish is best served by BBQ but could also be grilled on a grill pan or in a frying pan or even baked!
