Chinese Pork Roast Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Chinese Pork Roast

Hoisin sauce is a Chinese dipping sauce that contains no fish and is thickened with sweet potatoes. It's used in a number of classic preparations like mu shu pork, and it's the main flavoring ingredient in this simple, yet savory roast recipe.

When mixed with honey and rice vinegar, the hoisin makes a sticky-sweet glaze for pork tenderloin. It's baked with thick-cut sweet potatoes and tender asparagus, resulting in a hearty and healthy meal with Chinese undertones.
