  1. In a large airtight plastic bag or glass baking dish, stir together the marinade ingredients. Add the pork and turn to coat. Seal the bag or cover the dish. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  2. Lightly spray the grill rack or broiler pan and rack with vegetable oil spray. Preheat the grill on medium high or preheat the broiler.

Fun Facts / Cooking Tips

Traditional Asian barbecued pork is slowly smoked and gets its bright red appearance from food coloring. This modern healthy version gets its beautiful color and tangy flavor from a mixture of hickory barbecue sauce and Asian condiments.
