Pork Roast with Plum Sauce: Page 161, A Taste of Aloha

I bought a pork roast knowing I had seen a lot of tasty pork recipes in our cookbooks, and I decided to try the Pork Roast with Plum Sauce on page 161 of A Taste of Aloha, in the Meats section.  What a winner!  The sauce was not just plummy from the hoisin sauce, it was a full-blown Asian barbecue sauce scented with sesame and ginger.  So delicious!

It doesn’t get much easier than a roast, and this recipe is no exception.  Sear the meat and roast.  Mix the sauce and add.  Gotta love it!  My two-year-old especially liked the sauce (and put it on everything).  I have to admit, so did I – it tasted great with green veggies like broccoli and green beans.

I have to say, the sauces in these cookbooks have definitely been a highlight for me!  They add that wow! factor to every dish.  I recommend you try this Plum Sauce today!

Saucy goodness!
