Red Pork Loin


  • 1 lb pork tenderloin, excess fat and the silver removed


  • 2 tbsp brown bean sauce, mashed
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 clove star anise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red food coloring, optional

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Put all ingredients in a small saucepan.
  2. Heat ingredients until sugar is just melted. Cool slightly.
  3. Put pork in a pan and pour marinade over pork.
  4. Refrigerate overnight.
  5. The following day, let stand 3-6 hours at room temperature, turning occasionally.
  6. Preheat oven to 350˚ F.
  7. Remove from marinade and discard the marinade.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and tent with foil.
  10. Let the meat rest 10 minutes.
  11. Slice thinly and serve with gravy and rice or noodles.

Note: The suggested food coloring measurement will make the meat a deeper red. You can either use it to create a more traditional recipe or forgo it to create a natural looking pork loin in color.
