Asian Tea Poached Pork Loin

My Aunt brought this great cold pork dish to our house over Christmas and I had never heard of such a thing! Poached Pork? Well, it is just yummy! And I loved it! Perfect for a party, a dinner or just about anything,so easy!!  You make it ahead and let it sit and “steep” in the marinade!  Now, the original marinade was really salty so I have changed it up and  I was super excited with the outcome!!  I served this at a party I catered last weekend and it was a hit!!


Asian Pork Loin

Boil pork loin in 2 family size teabags for 1 hour. Cool. Place in a plastic bag.  Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid.


1 cup low sodium Soy sauce

1 cup rice wine vinegar

1/2 c sherry

1 cup reserved cooking liquid

Add above ingredients to the plastic bag  and pour over pork. Allow to marinate for at least 24 hrs up to several days. It just gets better the longer it sits & steeps. Trust me here!

Sriracha Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup Mayo

2 T  marinade (from bag)

Sriracha to taste

1 bunch of scallions, chopped fine

Put mayo in a bowl and whisk in marinade to thin and flavor mayo, add Sriracha to taste I suggest adding a squeeze, stir, taste, repeat until you reach desired heat and tastiness!!

Slice pork thin and top with spring onions & a little of the marinade; serve cold/room temperature with crusty rolls and this amazing dipping sauce!
