Honey-Soy Glazed Pork


1 cup water
6 tbsp soy sauce
6 tbsp honey
3 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 1/2 tsp green onions, chopped
1 star anise
1 bay leaf
2 tsp cornstarch in water
1 1/2 kg pork
shitake mushrooms, sliced


1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a pan (water, soy sauce, honey, hoisin sauce, green onions, star anise and bay leaf) and heat the mixture until it boils.
2. Add cornstarch mixture until you achieve a syrupy texture.
3. Pour marinade over pork and let it marinate overnight.
4. Grill the pork with the mushrooms. 

Actually, I didn't have enough time to marinade the pork for an hour so as a cheat I boiled the pork with the marinade and then I created a second serving of the marinade mix, for grilling. I also made the decision to boil the pork because I wanted it to be tender and it worked just as I hoped it would. Since the pork was already cooked, I only had to grill it to give it the lovely "charcoal look".

This is so simple but the taste is just good. Boiling made sure that the pork absorbed the flavor well, so every bite was good. You can also use this marinade for chicken or liempo.
