There are a lot of Asian pork tenderloin recipes out there. But this one makes a tender and juicy roast topped with a sweet, spicy glaze. I like serving it with jasmine rice and green beans almondine. —Melissa Carafa, Broomall, Pennsylvania


  • 1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Chinese-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder


  1. Sprinkle pork roast with garlic salt and pepper. Place in a shallow roasting pan lined with heavy-duty foil. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until sauce is reduced to 3/4 cup, about 20-25 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Brush sauce over pork. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
