Lymington.com Recipe for February: Chinese Soy Pork
Fiona Hill from Real Food Catering gives us a simple, tasty, seasonal recipe for February
"Chinese soy pork is not only a family favourite but also a family affair: my daughter has improved my original recipe and we love it even more now! And for Chinese New Year of the Pig, what better way to celebrate right now - the best news of all is that this is a really simple recipe too.
You can make this recipe with either chops, tenderloin or like me for the Lymington Rotary club a whole loin.
You should marinade it for at least 24 hours - but if you have time make it 48!
You will need a deep plastic or china tub to marinade the pork.
Two pork tenderloins
4 tablespoons light soy
4 tablespoons dark soy
1 heaped tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
How to prepare and cook
Mix all the sauce ingredients together, place the meat in the dish and pour the sauce over it
Cover and leave for one or two days.
Remove and cook for the appropriate time depending on which cut of pork you chose.
I serve it with plain rice and stir fried Chinese leaf.
Enjoy - and adapt if you choose to maybe add some star anise?"
