gluten-free Chinese-style Barbecued Pork

Recommended Posts

I love the Chinese Barbecued Pork that you eat with Chinese Hot Mustard and Sesame seeds. About 30 years ago I got a recipe for this but didn't make it because I could just as easily buy it. BUT, luckily, I never throw away recipes. I started craving it so now that I eat gluten free I'm so glad I saved the recipe. I made it today: It is quite tasty and my whole family loved it.

To make it you need gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free hoisin sauce. Gluten-free soy sauce is easy to find: I use San-J Tamari Wheat-free Soy Sauce but there are others. I have not found a gluten-free hoisin sauce so I made my own from a recipe I found on recipezaar-- link shown below.


Here's the Pork recipe

Chinese-Style Barbecued Pork

Makes 8 servings

2 tablespoon hoisin sauce

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon dry sherry

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (optional)

1/4 cup sugar

2 pork tenderloins

Serve with:

Chinese hot mustard

Toasted sesame seeds

1. Mix hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sherry, salt, red food coloring and sugar together in a gallon ziplock bag (or flat dish).

2. Place pork tenderloins in the sauce and turn over several times to coat meat. Refrigerate at least one hour or overnight (overnight is recommended).

3. Place marinated tenderloins on a rack in a foil-lined baking pan and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 25 minutes on each side. Baste occasionally with marinade.

4. Bake until 160 degrees when measured by an instant thermometer (USDA recommended temperature)

5. Remove, cool and slice meat crosswise into thin slices and serve with hot mustard and toasted sesame seeds for dipping.
