Chinese BBQ Pork

Need a good appetizers for that New Year's Party you plan on attending? This recipe is delicious and always a crowd pleaser. Super easy yet impressive. Chinese BBQ Pork. There is a bit of preparation but it pays off with taste and flavor.

Here is what you need:

1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbls red food coloring
1 Tbls cinnamon
2 green onions halved
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 slices pork tenderloin

Trim fat from the meat. In a large plastic zip lock (gallon size) combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, honey, food coloring cinnamon, onion and garlic. Add the meat and turn to coat completely. Place in the refrigerator overnight turning the meat occasionally. Reserve the marinade.

Place the meat on a cookie sheet (I put foil onto the cookie sheet for easy cleaning). Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees basting every 15 minutes with the reserved marinade. The pork will no longer be pink when done.

Remove from oven and slice into thin pieces. Then serve with Chinese mustard and sesame seeds.

What if I don't want to put in the red food coloring. Will that change more than just the appearance?
