- 1 kg pork
- 5 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 50 ml Chinese rice wine
- 4 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
- 1 teaspoon white pepper

Put the Hoisin sauce, honey, sugar, Chinese wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, Chinese five-spice powder and white pepper in a bowl. Stir well until smooth.
Add the pork and mix well, cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for 2 hours.
Place the pork on a baking rack and bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C, cooking on one side for 10 minutes.
Take it out, turn it over and, using a brush, cover it with the previously prepared sauce and put it back in the oven for a further 10 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave to rest for a further 5 minutes.
In a frying pan put the rest of the sauce with which we have seasoned the pork and reduce it until it thickens. Set aside.
Remove the pork from the oven and it is ready to serve, cut it into small pieces and serve with the sauce.
