We used five-spice powder (a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns) to give this succulent roasted-pork dish a little heat.


Uncooked lean only pork loin

3 pound(s)

Five-spice powder

1 Tbsp

Toasted sesame oil

2½ tsp

Garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), medium, minced

Orange marmalade

2 Tbsp

Reduced-sodium chicken broth

cup(s), or fat free

Soy sauce

1 Tbsp

Orange marmalade

2 tsp

Snow peas

6 cup(s), steamed

Sesame ginger salad dressing

4 tsp, or marinade


  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. In a small bowl, combine five-spice powder, 2 teaspoons of sesame oil and garlic; coat pork with mixture. Place pork in a roasting pan. Cook 10 minutes; reduce temperature to 325ºF and cook until internal temperature is 145ºF, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove from oven.
  3. Increase oven temperature to broil. Coat pork with 2 tablespoons of marmalade. Cook until glaze begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Remove to cutting board and cover with foil. Allow to stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Place same pan over medium-high heat. Add broth, soy sauce, dressing or marinade, remaining 2 teaspoons of marmalade and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Scrape up remaining food bits on bottom of pan. Stir to combine; heat through, about 2 minutes. Serve over pork. Yields about 3 ounces pork and 1/2 cup snow peas per serving.
