Reviews – Chinese Roast Pork Tenderloin Recipes

This was a great recipe! We had company over for homemade Chinese food and this was the hit of the meal. I marinated this for 24 hours and it was perfect!

Great little recipe! I marinated for about 6 hours and it was nice and flavorful and it went great with veggie fried rice and potstickers. I did use brown rice miso, since that’s all I had.

WOW! Was I surprised my family went nuts over this recipe. No more buying from the store already prepared. This is our favorite Sunday football snack. The only thing I did different was add 2 tablespoons of Hoisen sauce and can’t get yellow miso so used black bean sauce instead. This works great with any inexpensive cut of pork, just make sure most of the fat is removed. Thank you Dancer for another Fabulouse recipe.

This is an excellant recipe, we all loved it..I served it with sesame noodles and homemade eggrolls.. I have pork enough left over to chop and use in fried rice for another day.. Oh, I used red miso (aka ‘black bean sauce’) because it is easily available in the oriental section of any grocery store. 5 stars!!
