  • Ingredients
  • 450 g pork fillet/tenderloin (or you can use pork shoulder or neck which is more authentic and economical, but higher in fat and calories)
  • 150 g (rich) hoisin sauce (many brands contain wheat flour, so check the label if you can't eat wheat/gluten - Blue Dragon brand is gluten free)
  • 100 g honey (runny)
  • 2 tbsp each light soy sauce (use tamari soy sauce, for a wheat/gluten free version) and Shaoxing wine (or use dry sherry, or dry white wine)
  • 1 tbsp red fermented bean curd, or crushed yellow bean sauce (you could substitute miso paste if you really can't get hold of any for a vaguely similar flavour - check gluten free if applicable)*
  • ½ tsp five-spice powder (without salt)
  • Large pinch of white pepper
