leek & honey pork

I only have one or two leek recipes, so I wanted to expand my leek collection. I came across this one and tried it. I should've used a fattier piece of meat, but it turned out better than I expected. :) If you have any leek recipes, please share with me. :)


Pork - about 1 lbs

[Pork marinade]
Honey - 4 TBS
Cooking oil - 2 TBS
Soy sauce - 1/3 cup
Anise - 1 (med) or 2 (small)
Leek - about 5 inches (thin slices)
Ginger - 2 TBS (minced)
Garlic - 1 TBS (minced)


  1. Put the pork and all the marinade ingredients in a Ziplock bag. Massage the meat well with the marinade. Let it sit in the marinade (in the fridge) for at least an hour. *see TIPS
  2. On a baking safe dish, line it with aluminum foil. 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. On a hot grill or wok, heat 2 TBS of oil. 
  3. Take the meat out from the marinade. Transfer the marinade on a smaller saucepan. 
  4. Heat the saucepan on low for 5-10 minutes. 
  5. On a hot grill, fry the pork 3 minutes on one side and turn for another 3 minutes. It's not cooked all the way. 
  6. Transfer to baking dish (on aluminum foil) and pour the marinade mixture on top. 
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, turn the meat and bake for another 10 minutes. Cover aluminum foil and bake for extra 5-7 minutes. The marinade should caramelize. **TIPS


  1. Take out the cooked meat out on a chopping board. Let it sit for 5 minutes. 
  2. Slice the meat into desired thickness. 
  3. Serve with rice or ramen (like char siu ramen) 


  • You can marinade a day before as well. 
  • If you don't have oven or don't want to bake, you can just use frying pan or grill. Add marinade to the grill/wok and follow the instructions.
