  1. In a bowl with a lid or a ziptop bag, combine hoisin sauce, allspice, salt, minced garlic, and black pepper (or cayenne). Mix thoroughly to create the marinade.
  2. Cut the pork tenderloin into 2-inch cubes and add them to the marinade. Coat the pork well. Allow it to marinate for 2 to 12 hours in the refrigerator. The longer it marinates, the more flavorful it will become.
  3. If grilling, preheat your grill to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Thread the marinated pork onto skewers, leaving a little space between each piece. Grill, turning occasionally, until the pork is cooked through. This typically takes about 15-20 minutes.
  4. If cooking on the stovetop, preheat a skillet and add the marinated pork. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the pork is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. This should take around 10-15 minutes.
  5. Serve your hoisin pork tenderloin plain or over a bed of fluffy rice. Garnish with finely chopped green onions for a burst of freshness and color.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I use a different cut of pork besides tenderloin?

While pork tenderloin is lean and tender, you can experiment with other cuts like pork loin or even boneless pork chops. Just adjust cooking times accordingly and cook them through.

Is hoisin sauce gluten-free?

Not all hoisin sauces are gluten-free, so be sure to check the label if you have dietary restrictions. There are gluten-free hoisin sauce options available in many stores.

Can I freeze leftover hoisin pork tenderloin?

Yes, you can freeze any leftovers in an airtight container for up to three months. Thaw and reheat in the oven or microwave for a quick and tasty meal.

Can I substitute allspice with another spice?

If you don’t have allspice, combine cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. However, the unique flavor of allspice adds depth to this dish, so it’s worth trying to include it if possible.

    This pork was so flavorful! I reserved some of the marinade (before adding to the pork) to brush over the skewers at the end. Next time I would just make a little extra sauce because we really loved it!
