For the marinade
- STEP 1
First, make the marinade. Whisk the hoisin sauce, red bean curd (along with the sauce from the can), the soy sauces, rice wine, garlic and 3 tbsp honey together. Tip half into a large bowl with the pork, reserving the rest of the marinade for basting later. Season the pork, toss to coat and chill for 5 hrs to marinate.
- STEP 2
Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Transfer the pork to a roasting tin and roast for 30 mins.
- STEP 3
Meanwhile, mix the remaining marinade with the rest of the honey. Brush over the pork every 10 mins, so it’s evenly coloured. Serve with the rice and pak choi, and the spring onions scattered over.
