What is Chinese New Year! January 23rd!
Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. In China, it is known as "Spring Festival," the literal translation of the Chinese name 春节 (Pinyin: Chūn Jié), owing to the difference between Western and traditional Chinese methods for computing the seasons. It marks the end of the winter season, analogous to the Western carnival. The festival begins on the first day of the first month (Chinese: 正月; pinyin: Zhēng Yuè) in the traditional Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Chinese New Year's Eve, a day where Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner, is known as Chú Xī (除夕) or "Eve of the Passing Year." Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year". From Wikipedia
Hi I'm Jess one of the creative minds behind A Couple of Craft Addicts. I enjoy cooking, crafting, DIY, and sewing. I am addicted to fabric and receiving inspiration on projects I can recreate myself. I am so excited to be here today and share this very delicious recipe that is a family favorite.
Need a good appetizers for that New Year's Party you plan on attending? This recipe is delicious and always a crowd pleaser. Super easy yet impressive.
Chinese BBQ Pork. There is a bit of preparation but it pays off with taste and flavor.
Here is what you need:
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. red food coloring
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 green onions halved
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 slices pork tenderloin
Trim fat from the meat. In a large plastic zip lock (gallon size) combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, honey, food coloring cinnamon, onion and garlic.
Add the meat and turn to coat completely. Place in the refrigerator overnight turning the meat occasionally. Reserve the marinade.
Place the meat on a cookie sheet (I put foil onto the cookie sheet for easy cleaning).
Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees basting every 15 minutes with the reserved marinade.
The pork will no longer be pink when done.
Remove from oven and slice into thin pieces. Then serve with Chinese mustard and sesame seeds.
Have a great weekend Happy Chinese new Year!
