Chinese Roast Pork
This is a very easy dish to throw together, as once you have combined all the ingredients, it is just the marinating of the pork that takes the time. I tend to marinade mine in the morning before work but it can also be marinated overnight if preferred. I served ours with vegetable and egg fried rice but feel free to serve it with whatever you like.


600g Piece pork fillet
1/4 Cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons dry sherry
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 Tablespoons honey
1 (50g) Packet roast red pork seasoning mix
3 Cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 Teaspoon five spice powder


1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix well, add pork, toss to coat, refrigerate several hours or over night.

2. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, drain pork, reserving marinade.

3. Place pork in an oven proof dish, roast uncovered, for about 50 Min’s or until browned and cooked through. Brush pork several times with reserved marinade whilst cooking.

4. Let pork stand for 5-10 Min’s before slicing.

Chinese Tuna With Curry Chive Mayonnaise
This is one of the nicest ways I have prepared tuna in a while, I think it is because it is a little different. I love tuna and this recipe was no exception the curry mayonnaise goes so well with it and the marinade is wonderful. It is a quick and easy meal to throw together with a wonderful end result. I served ours over salad greens with avocado and mango some chopped up egg and alfalfa sprouts. It made for a very healthy delicious meal.

6 Tuna steaks


1/4 Cup sherry wine
1/4 Cup light soy sauce
2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 Teaspoon ground pepper
2 Tablespoons minced green onions
1/4 Cup minced ginger

1/4 Cup vegetable oil

Curry Mayonnaise

1 1/2 Cups mayonnaise
1/4 Cup honey
1/4 Cup finely chopped chives
2 1/2 Tablespoons curry powder
1/2 Tablespoon turmeric


1. For mayo, combine all ingredients in a steel bowl and stir until completely incorporated. Refrigerate for later use.

2. For marinade, add all ingredients in a steel bowl and stir until well combined; let sit for 2 hours for flavors to blend.

3. Marinate tuna steaks in marinade for 2 hours. Grill tuna on high heat for 2 minutes on each side (do not overcook, or tuna will become dry).

4. Place mayo in a plastic bag, cut off the bottom corner of bag and squeeze sauce across grilled tuna in a “zig zag” pattern.
