Hoisin Pork Tenderloin

In this ramen noodle recipe, ramen graduates from college-casual when served with saucy pork tenderloin. Our guests appreciate sitting down to this Asian-style meal. —Connie Keller, Lake Ozark, Missouri

    Great recipe, pork was excellent. I added julienne carrots and edamame to round it out and will definitely be making again.

    We loved it. Cooked it in my air fryer with the rotisserie, it came out great.

    Everyone in my family loved this. I braised the pork first for the time in the oven then I put it in the pressure cooker for the last bit of time. It was crispy on top and moist inside. The leftovers went in a bag with the reserve sauce for stir fry or sandwiches the next day. (I used a larger pork loin). Really easy and delicious!

    When it’s says preheat oven to 475 off the heat what does that mean ?

    The pork was moist and delicious, and the flavors in the sauce really make this dish pop. And it was easy to put together, which is always a plus with my hectic lifestyle.

    This was delicious! Who knew ramen could be this good? I chopped up asparagus and roasted it in the oven then added it to the dish when I was ready to serve. So good! I had some leftover pork, so I added it to a salad the next day. Will definitely make this again!

    Made this on a weeknight when I needed something quick. Good flavors. Hoisin is a big favorite in our house. We double the recipe and had a bit larger tenderloin roast so it took longer than the stated 15-20 minutes to cook.

    This is a quick and easy meal! I made this exactly as written and loved the sauce and how it gives a nice caramelization to the outside of the tenderloin. A great way to dress up ramen noodles.

    Absolutely delicious. Adding butter to the sauce really deepened the flavor. Next time I'll break up the noodles before cooking them; no other changes, though.
