Grilled Hoisin and Five Spice Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Grilled Hoisin and Five Spice Glazed Pork Tenderloin

The marinade for the pork tenderloin is really quick to put together and has a lot of flavor.  You can make your own Chinese five spice with one teaspoon of each of the following spices – szechuan peppercorns, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise, and cinnamon and store it in an airtight spice jar.  Hoisin is a staple in my refrigerator and it is a Chinese paste made from soy, chilies, plum puree, vinegar and garlic and is sweet and slightly sour and delicious.  Mix hoisin, Chinese five spice, Shao Xing rice wine or sherry, garlic and ginger together and add cubed pork tenderloin pieces and marinate overnight or 20 minutes.  I grilled mine in the grill basket and then glazed it right before it was completely cooked with the remaining marinade and sprinkled sliced green onions over.  I served it with jasmine rice and grilled some asparagus.  You could also make kebabs with the pork and alternate diced red pepper and onion and grill them. Click here for the recipe….
