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.

Hoisin Pork Fillet
This is a recipe I came up with the other night as I had a pork loin to use up. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it so I just used a bunch of stuff I already had in my fridge and cupboard and it turned out really well. I served ours over egg and vegetable fried rice but it would be just as nice served over steamed rice as well.


500g Pork fillet
1/2 Cup hoisin sauce
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons bourbon
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 Teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons sweet chili sauce
2 Cloves garlic, crushed


1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, add pork fillet and marinade several hours or over night in the fridge.

2. Pre-Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade, place pork in an oven proof dish, roast for 35-40 Min’s or until cooked as desired, basting occasionally with marinade whilst cooking.

3. Remove pork and cover to keep warm.

4. In a sauce pan pour remaining marinade along with pork juices and bring to the boil, Simmer a few minutes.

Serve pork sliced over rice with sauce.
