SHOE HORN ALERT. We bought a house 🙂 I realise that has NOTHING to do with honey, soy and ginger pork loins, but I just needed to get it out there. We’ve been looking for around a year and finally found our dream home back in June, and exchanged contracts a week or so ago. The really important part is that it’s got a ma-hoo-sive kitchen with a RANGEMASTER oven (omg omg), loads of putting down space and beautiful wooden work tops with loads of natural light. If you’ve watched my Insta Stories you’ll know I currently cook in a tiny kitchen maybe 1-2 metres wide so I am extremely excited to the upgrade! I cannot wait to show you all, we should be in by Christmas.
Anyway now thats out of the way, here’s a nice recipe for pork.
For ages I really wasn’t fond of pork, but then eating it in Chinese food as Char Sui really got me into it. Pork loins are pretty cheap in Aldi or Lidl and easy to cook with too! I love this recipe as a nice quick weekend dinner, just make sure you marinate the meat in the morning and it will be delicious by the time you come to cook it!
Honey, Soy and Ginger Pork Loins
- 4 pork loins
- 1 medium onion
- 1 pepper
- 1 tsp cornflour
- Sesame and vegetable oil for frying
For the marinade
- 3 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 3 tbsp light soy sauce
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 inch piece fresh ginger or 3 tsp powdered
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)
Chop up the pork loins so they’re in approx 2cm cubes, you want them quite small to absorb more of the marinade. Mix all the marinade ingredients together and pour over the pork, mixing well. Leave in the fridge for 3-6 hours, moving around occasionally.
When ready to cook, slice up the onion finely and the pepper, and then heat the sesame and vegetable oil together before frying the two veg together. Add the pork and cook for 5 minutes or so or until cooked through, adding more oil if needed and browning on all sides. Turn the heat down and add the cornflour mixed with a little water and some additional soy sauce and heat gently until it’s a thick, glossy sauce.
Serve with rice or noodles. I also added some of my crispy air fryer ‘seaweed’ because I can’t get enough!
