2lbs of lean pork loan
1 cup of apricot preserve (see note)
1/3 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of Chinese cooking wine (or sherry)
4-6 garlic cloves grated
2 inches of grated fresh ginger
Pepper to taste
To start, prick the pork with a fork all over then marinate for 30 minutes on the counter. I simple put all the ingredients in a large zip-loc bag and let it marinate away.
Note: You can use orange marmalade, peach preserve or pineapple juice in place of the apricot preserve.
Bake 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Then increase the heat to 500 degrees, remove the foil and move the pork to a higher rack in the oven and allow to bake (uncovered) another 10-15 minutes so the outside becomes browned. Test the pork to make sure it is done. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before carving.
