Chinese Barbecued Pork w/ Garlic Sauce

This is an awesome recipe--fast and delicious. It came originally from epicurious.com, the best site for recipes.
I fix this with broccoli (recipe below) and plain rice.

Preheat oven to 425

Mix together:
2 tbl hoisin sauce
2 tbl ketchup
2 tbl soy sauce
1 tbl minced garlic
1 tsp sugar

Smear it all over a 3/4 lb pork tenderloin, seperated into 2 pieces. Place in an aluminum foil line baking dish.
The aluminum foil is important. It will make clean up a snap. The original recipe says to roast at 350 for 35-40 minutes. I roast it at 425 for 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer register 140-145. Cover w/ foil and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

While the pork is roasting make the garlic soy sauce:
Mix together:
4 Tbl soy sauce
1 Tbl minced garlic
2 tsps rice vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1-2 tsp Asian chile paste w/ garlic, or asian chile oil
1/2 cup chopped, fresh coriander

Remove the pork & let it rest,covered, for 10 minutes. Slice it thinly and top with some of the garlic soy sauce. Serve with broccoli and rice.

Asian style broccoli
Steam or microwave broccoli til tender,crisp
Toss hot broccoli w/ 1 tbl oyster saucer, 1 tsp brown sugar, & t tbl chicken stock
Salt & pepper to taste
