The marinated pork in this Chinese recipe is gorgeous, and the sweet potato mash helps you mop up all those lovely juices.

Ingredients

  • 2 x 400g pork tenderloin fillets
  • 800g sweet potatoes
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger

For the marinade

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

Method

  1. Halve the pork fillets. Mix the marinade ingredients in a dish, then add the pork, turn to coat, and set aside to marinate.
  2. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and bring to the boil in a saucepan of lightly salted water. Simmer for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain well, return to the pan and mash with the butter and ginger. Season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, put the pork and its marinade into a dry frying pan over a medium heat and brown the meat on all sides. Add 100ml water and cook for 15 minutes, adding a little water if necessary and turning occasionally, until the sauce is thick and the pork is just cooked through.
  4. Slice the pork and divide between plates. Drizzle with the sauce and serve with the sweet potato mash. Delicious served with steamed pak choi.
