Roast Pork Loin using Siracha or Chili paste

Pls advise recipe that might use either or suggest dry rub or paste for pork loin. Thanks

  1. If you are going for an Asian taste, then I would suggest combining with Hoisin or Teriyaki.....Sweet & Spicy is more appealing and ultimately, the roast will look more appealing with the caramelized result from the addition of the sauces.

      Thanks for your reply. How much Hoisin would you use. Also I have a Siricha(sp) - have you ever used that?

    2. We found this recipe in First magazine years ago and have made it many times. Paraphrasing the instructions: Cut slits into the pork and stuff the garlic & zest into the slits. Roast about a half hour. Combine the remaining ingredients, baste, and cook to desired temperature. (I use at least 3 cloves when I set up the roast.)

      2 tsp grated lemon zest
      1 garlic clove, minced
      1 pork loin (about 3 pounds.), trimmed of all visible fat
      1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
      1 Tbsp Chinese plum sauce
      1-2 tsp chili paste (to taste)
      1/4 tsp salt
      1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

            You could just leave it out, or substitute some Grape Jelly or whatever jelly or jam you have on hand.
