My Families Barbequed Pork

My Families Barbequed Pork

1 tsp. Accent
1/2 C. Sugar
1 1/2 C. Soy Sauce
1 T. Sesame Oil
1 T. Red Food Coloring
1 1/2 T. Yellow Food Coloring
2 tsp. Salt
One 3-5 lb lean boneless pork loin, cut into sections length wise
1 T. Honey
2 T. Oil

Mix first 7 ingredients (accent through salt) well in a large ziploc bag. Add meat to marinade and allow to marinate 24 hour in refrigerator. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place meat on a foil lined broiler pan. Mix honey and cooking oil. Place meat in oven and cook 15-25 minutes per side; time depends on how thickly you sliced the meat into tenderloins. Baste with the honey-oil mix once each side while cooking. This smells really bad while it cooks, so prepare ahead of time for guests. You need to check the meat often to make sure it is not burning.

After meat is cooled, slice thinly, serve with hot mustard (coleman’s dry mustard mixed with water), ketchup and sesame seeds if you wish. I put a minor amount of dry hot mustard in the ketchup mixture with a drop or two of soy sauce instead of using straight ketchup.

Notes: I had a difficult time figuring the calories on this recipe. You discard quite a few calories pouring off the marinade, so it’s not just a matter of adding it all up and dividing by how ever many servings. When my family makes this, the slices usually come out about 1 1/2″ tall x 3″ wide x 1/4″ thick (maybe a little thinner sliced), and each slice at that size works out to about 25 calories, about 160 calories for 3 oz. or so is a rather rough guess.
