Glazed Pork Fillet

Glazed Pork Fillet

I made this for lunch today, just for two.  Did you read that, Just. For. Two. It’s a rare occasion that lunch is just for us to share, without the need for the mad juggling of plates and glasses that goes on when little people are dining!  It’s simple to put together and doesn’t require much preparation, or washing up, which is always a bonus!  I only had a small cut of pork to work with, and it was probably cooked a little more than I would have liked, but that is what happens when you have to bail out the washing machine because it decides it just wants to keep on filling up and not wash! Oh the glamorous life I lead!!

What You Need:

  • 200g pork fillet


  • 1 tablespoon hoi sin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon kecap manis
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic

What You Need To Do:

If you have time you can make the glaze the night before and marinate the pork overnight, but if you don’t have the time ( or inclination!) it will still taste yummy.  All you do is mix all of the glaze ingredients together and coat the piece of pork.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and oil a baking tray.  Bake the pork until it is done, this piece took about 20 minutes. You can carefully baste the pork with some of the juices from the pan while it is cooking to help keep it moist.  Take it out of the oven and set it aside for about five minutes before you cut it.

I served the pork with some basmati rice and some wilted bok choy, just because that is what I had!  You could stir fry some veges or even have a little salad with it.
