Chinese 5 Spice & Pork

We love using Chinese 5 Spice in our kitchens! It’s a simple, traditional spice combination and ours combines cinnamon, cloves, star anise, fennel and black pepper. I’ve baked with it in cookies before, I use it often when whipping up an Asian dipping sauce and I find it is an amazing flavor combo when used with pork like in the two recipes below!


CHINESE 5 SPICE PORK, APPLE & ONIONS: I simply thin slice apples and onions and place in the bottom of a greased baking dish, and then sprinkle on Chinese 5 spice & a little salt and pepper to pork chops, placed on the bed of apple & onions and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. (This picture is from, and missing my delish combo with the apple and onions)











But another delicious way to pair Chinese 5 Spice Pork is with a sweet marinade glaze made with Hoisin sauce, a little Sesame oil and a little soy sauce and whip up some simple stir fry! Don’t worry if you don’t have a wok, i just use my big skillet.

  • 1 lb. chopped up or stripped up pork meat
  • 1 tbsp. Chinese 5 Spice
  • 2 tsp. Sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce

Toss meat with the Chinese 5 spice. In a separate small dish blend the hoisin and soy sauces and set to the side.
Add sesame oil to medium high temperature skillet, then add the meat and start to brown. Once half cooked add in the veggies, then just before done, toss in the sauce mix and finish cooking.
Serve over rice or noodles.
