Honey Soy Pork Loin: Savory Delight

Tender cubes of pork loin are bathed in a luscious sauce made from honey, soy sauce, and a hint of sesame oil. The sweetness from the honey balances perfectly with the salty tang of the soy sauce, while the sesame oil adds a subtle nuttiness that elevates the dish . And let’s not forget the kick of garlic and crushed red pepper, adding just the right amount of spice to keep things interesting.


Because I like slightly sweet and definitely heat, this flavor profile really appeals to me. Honey, soy sauce, and crushed red peppers are the main flavor notes that you get. This sauce will also be great on chicken.

  • Pork loin, cooked and cubed. Choose a high-quality pork loin for the best flavor and texture. Furthermore, you can use chicken breasts or thighs instead of pork.
  • honey
  • Low-sodium soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • garlic
  • onion
  • bbq sauce, your favorite
  • Crushed red pepper. Like more heat? Add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  • cold water
  • corn starch
  • Sesame seeds. Don’t skip the sesame seeds! They add a delightful crunch and a nutty flavor that takes this dish to the next level.
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onions
