enough time to allow this flavorful marinade to do it's work overnight.
This turns a relatively inexpensive cut of pork into something great.
Serve with rice and your favorite pot stickers or any other oriental
styled side dishes.
Preparation Time: 2 hours plus overnight marinade Serving
- 2 lb pork sirloin roast
- 1/3 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1/3 pure raw honey
- 1/3 cup plum jam
In a bowl large enough to fit your roast,
thoroughly combine the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, honey and plum jam. Untie
and lay out your roast if it came bound from the market. After rinsing and
patting dry, pierce holes in the meat about 2 inches apart, all around the
roast. Place the roast in the bowl and massage the marinade thoroughly into
the meat. Place the roast in a 1 gallon plastic bag and pour in all of
the marinade. Press as much air as possible out of the plastic bag and seal.
Place the bag in a clean bowl or on a plate and refrigerate at least 8 hours
but better overnight. Occasionally redistribute the marinade by turning the
When ready to cook, remove the bowl containing the
marinating roast from the refrigerator and sit on the counter to come to
room temperature. Heat oven to 325° and set the rack close to the bottom to
allow the roast to be positioned in the middle of the oven when sitting on
the rack in the roasting pan. Line the roasting pan with foil to facilitate
cleaning and spray or oil the rack. Remove the roast from the marinade and
tie it back up into a tight bundle. Put an oven-proof meat thermometer in
the center. Place on the center of the rack in the roaster. Pour the
remaining marinade into a medium bowl. Brush the roast liberally and place
in the oven. Set a timer for 1 hour and 45 minutes to use as a guide.
After 15 minutes in the oven, liberally brush more marinade over the roast.
Do this again after 15 more minutes. Then wait 20 minutes apart to baste the
roast only a couple more times until you have 1/2 cup of marinade left in
the bowl. As soon as the thermometer in the roast reads 145°, remove the pan
from the oven and cover with foil. Allow the roast to sit at least 20
minutes. Meanwhile, bring the remaining marinade to a boil in a small sauce
pan. Cook for 1 minute. Serve with the sliced pork.
