Oven Baked Pork with a Hint of Orange

This is gonna be a quick post here,
My eyes are about to close after a long day doing NOTHING!
Yes, it's been a very unproductive Sunday for me,
And I guess the laziness is.....

(After 12 hours.......)

Yeah the first part you saw was written on Sunday night,
Right now it's already Monday noon,
Yes...I fell asleep after that...didn't even get to finish my post...
Guess my eyes just couldn't stayed open yesterday.

Please allow me to finish my job here,
Recipe for oven baked pork with a hint of orange-

1 lb of pork loin (cubed into large bite sizes)
6 garlic cloves (peeled)
1 orange
1 tablespoon of honey
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of mirin
2 tablespoons of sake (Japanese cooking wine)
2 teaspoons of grated ginger


This is a very simple dish to make,
Just toss in everything in a Ziploc, including the juice of 1/2 orange,
Squeeze the air out, and seal it.
Rub the bag in order to mix all the ingredients inside the bags,
Make sure all the meat chunks are coated with the marinade,
Put it in the fridge and let it sit for at least 6 hours.

When you're ready for the feast,
Simply preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit,
Transfer the pork into a baking dish,
I also transfer all the sauce too, don't toss it away please, I can assure you that the sauce will be very tasty on rice.

So let's bake it for 20 minutes,
Turn the heat up to 400 degrees and back for another 20 minutes, or till the edge turns slightly brown.

After you take out the baking dish from the oven,
Let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
I also added some orange zest on the pork,
It gives more kick to the dish and makes it look prettier!

    Yeah I cooked so much...took me so many days to finish it haha..
    Can't be this greedy next time.

  3. Wow, what a mouthwatering photo! The combination of big juicy hunks of pork, lots of garlic, honey, ginger, and an orange sounds totally amazing. I'm about to eat curried Vietnamese fish, but I'd trade it right now for a few bites of this! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
