Prep: 15 mins + 30 mins marinating time.  Cooking: 35 mins.  Serves 6.


  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tbs hoisin
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs molasses
  • 1 tbs chopped garlic
  • 2 tbs superfine sugar
  • 1 tsp five-spice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 lb 10 oz pork fillet

Combine first 7 ingredients in a saucepan.  Combine cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of water and add it to the spice mixture.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes.  Allow to cool, then place pork in sauce, and then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 415 F.  Lift the pork out of sauce and place on a wire rack over a baking tray half-filled with hot water; reserve marinade.  Cook pork for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 F and cook for a further 15 minutes, basting with reserved marinade.  Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
