Samuel and I are always looking for REAL Asian food. After living in China its hard to find stuff that isn't totally Americanized and doesn't taste like it should. I got this cookbook from my sister in law for Christmas and this recipe out of it is definitely a keeper!
- 3 tbls Hoisin Sauce
- 3 tbls Fresh Orange Juice
- 2 tbls Soy Sauce
- 2 tbls Rice Cooking Wine
- 1 tsp Brown Sugar
- 2 tsp Peanut Oil
- 1 tbls grated Ginger
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 4 pork loin chops (or we used chicken once too)
- salt and pepper
- steamed rice
Prepare a girl on medium-high heat (i used our handy george foreman). in a small bowl combine the hoisin sauce, orange juice, soy sauce, wine and brown sugar. Stir to disolve the sugar.
In a small suacepan over medium heat, warm 1 tbls of oil. add the ginger and garlic and saute for about 5 seconds until fragrant. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and simmer for about 2 minutes. set aside half of the sauce as a glaze and heat just before serving.
season the pork chops (or chicken) with salt and pepper and oil the grill rack with remaining oil. place the chops on the grill and brush the sauce on chops. cook 4-5 minutes on both sides or until done. Serve over rice and with extra sauce.
