Method

  1. Tip all the marinade ingredients into a shallow dish and stir to combine. Coat the pork in the marinade and, if you have time, leave for 1 hr or even better overnight. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
  2. Heat an ovenproof pan and take the pork out of the marinade. Brown on all sides, then baste over the rest of the marinade and roast the pork for 20 mins until cooked all the way through, basting with its juices every 5 mins or so. Serve the pork sliced with rice and your favourite steamed greens.

We all love this dish. I would say reduce the orange by half as it is a bit overpowering. I cook this in the oven on a slightly lower heat and for about 40 mins covered with foil to keep it moist. I baste every 10 mins. It is gorgeous!

we have cooked pork fillet many times but we thought the orange flavour was far too strong, it could have been a 'strong' orange but i would use all the juice & half zest next time. i used a foil covering until meat cooked & while meat was resting, put liquid back in oven to thicken, it was nice & sticky! we had roasted root veg & a corn cob.

Really easy to make, I marinaded pork medallions over night and served with stir fried Pak choi. My OH loved it, I was not so keen but I am not a huge fan of soy sauce so I guess it was to be expected.

This was really nice, it was quick and easy to cook making it perfect for a mid-week meal and there was enough left over for my pack-lunch the day after :)
I didnt have any fresh ginger so i used a tsp of ground ginger and it worked fine.
I also only used the orange zest, after reading some of the other comments i figured i'd leave out the juice as im not a huge fan orange.
But all in all it worked out great, i'll defiantly make this again

Superb. Stuck to the recipe quantities, but finished up leaving it in the fridge longer than intended (about 24 hours). Absolutely delicious. I made the mistake of doing stir fried veg & beansprouts with it, but the sauce gave too many conflicting flavours. Next time will use plain rice or mashed potatoes with steamed vegies. This pork dish can stand on its own with simple side dishes.

Delicious. For me, it took longer to cook than the recipe stated, by which time I had hardly any juices left to pour over as shown in the picture. Tasted good anyway.

I made it with pork loin steaks and only had time to marinade it for an hour but it was still really tasty. Served it with roasted new potatoes and green beans.

I made this with Sizzle Steaks from Asda, only marinated for about half an hour which was perfect do to the thinnes of these steaks and cooked in a frying pan in the marinade! Made twice the amount of sauce as its gorgeous over boiled rice and veg to occompany your pork! Made twice already and def will be making again! I have never added the ginger, but did add some chinese five spice which was lush

Is the 165 Calories with the rice?

This is a great easy recipe. I used a huge piece of pork tenderloin, it's such a good value cut of meat so I'm always looking for new recipes. The marinade is delicious, I used half a big orange as I was worried about it being overpowering and it was still very orangy. The pork was lovely and moist, you have to be really careful not to overcook it so it doesn't become dry, it would totally ruin the dish. Will certainly make this again, everyone enjoyed it.

I tweaked the recipe a little by adding Chinese five spice, and also put some flour in the sauce as others suggested to thicken it. However, it was VERY orangey. I mean, if you had a fork with some rice and veg on it too it wasn't too bad, but if like my boyfriend you eat each thing on the plate one at a time it was overpowering. I did marinate mine for a night and a day though, maybe too long? It was edible and different, and I like the pork fillet cut, but maybe do something else with it.

This wasn't for us, too sweet and orangey unfortunately. My family grumbling about what I cook is pretty much unheard of but this got a unanimous thumbs down. Even I wasn't keen, though on the plus side it was certainly quick and fuss free to prepare :-(
