This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.
This recipe is a family favourite - both in my immediate family and now in the Eat, live, travel, write household. When my sister and I are at home or when mum and dad are visiting us, we always ask mum to cook this dish - it's become a classic. Luckily I pretty much know the quantities off by heart since mum's recipe is looking a bit faded these days (photocopied I believe in 1991)!
As I originally entered this in the POM Fresh Recipe Contest, I decided to make it as per mum's recipe but replace the hoisin sauce in the marinade with POM Wonderful juice and add a pomegranate glaze with arils for basting the pork whilst is is cooking and to serve. Marinading the meat in the juice and using it as a glaze really highlights the flavour and the pomegranate juice works so well with the Asian spices.
