This Hoisin Pork Loin is an affordable, healthy, and easy dinner that only requires 10 minutes of prep. It's the perfect quick-fix meal to shake up your weeknight routine!
It's so easy to get stuck in a dinnertime rut. Not that there's anything wrong with repeatedly making your family's favorite meals, but I often hear that you're bored with the basics and ready for a change. However, just because you want to try something new doesn't mean that you're ready to tackle something difficult.
Kids Love This Hoisin Pork
For the first few years of Gibbs's life, we referred to all pork dishes as "chicken." Not because we were trying to lie to our child, but because he assumed that the meat on his plate was chicken, he referred to it as chicken, and we just never bothered to officially correct him!?
That's why pork is such a great alternative when you're looking to serve something other than the same old chicken recipe. When it's cooked properly, pork is mild, juicy, and tender -- just like chicken! Your picky toddler will probably not even notice the difference, and you can wait until he's 5, 6, or 7 years old to enlighten him...
In addition to pork loin, one of the boys' other favorite foods has always been barbecue. The combination of the sweet sauce and the melt-in-your-mouth meat makes the dinner palatable for even the youngest eaters.
The hoisin glaze is sticky, sweet and delicious. You could also it on pork chops, chicken, beef and even salmon. It's so versatile and is sure to add a flavor bomb to your weeknight dinners.
