- Pork Fillet approx 700-900g
- 1/2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp molasses
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1/2 tbsp sherry
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
- 1 pinch Chinese 5 spice
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp fresh crushed ginger
Mix the Marinade ingredients in a bowl
Ensure the pork is no thicker than 5cm wide cut into 2 long strips if required (this will ensure the best flavour from marinade)
Place the pork in the marinade and massage for a few minutes
Cover and leave in the refrigerator overnight – if you do not have time for this, massage the meat every 30 minutes until you need to cook
Preheat the oven to 180C/355F
Place the pork in a casserole dish or tray which has space to keep the juices
Put in the center of the oven to cook for 90 minutes keeping aside the marinade
Mix the honey and ginger with the marinade juices
Remove the pork every 15 minutes during cooking, turn the meat over and brush the mixture on top each time
Heat the grill and after 90 minutes of cooking pour any remaining marinade over the pork and place under the grill
Cook until sticky and browning (I like to move the pork around in the juices and turn a few times during this process to pick up the most flavour)
Remove the pork from the dish or tray and allow to rest on a board for 5 minutes
Pour any meat juices from the board back into the cooking dish and mix together to create a drizzle for the pork
Finely slice the pork and arrange on serving plate
Pour over some of the drizzle and serve immediately with your favourite vegetables
