  • 1 pound pork tenderloin trimmed of fat
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lite soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice


  • Place the tenderloin in a large, sealable plastic bag. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and then pour into the bag. Press all the air out, then let the pork marinate for at least two hours but for up to 24 hours.
  • After marinading, pull out the tenderloin and set aside the remaining marinade. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. If you have a roasting rack, place it on top of a baking sheet lined with foil and place the tenderloin on the rack. If not, simply roast the tenderloin on the lined baking sheet. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes. Let it sit for five minutes after roasting, then slice and serve.
  • While pork is sitting, pour the remaining marinade in a saucepan on medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer for 4 to 5 minutes to thicken it. You can use this as a dipping sauce. Enjoy!


Optional: For a thicker, more caramelized sauce, when the pork is done roasting, baste it generously in the remaining marinade. Turn the oven to broil and broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
