Hoisin Pork with Rice Noodles

Hoisin Pork with Rice Noodles 1

I’m a Groupon novice because littletown Michigan doesn’t offer any cool local Groupons. But around the holidays, we gifted both of our families with family portraits. It had been…never…since we had family photos taken. It has been since Mr. P and I got hitched nearly 5 years ago, in fact.

It was a great gift and the shots turned out super cute.

But then came the ordering part…the Groupon part.

Thinking I was being soooo savvy, I purchased a few different Groupons for fun prints — canvases, wood, burlap…lots of fun stuff. Leave it to me, however, not to read the find print. I had to place each order individually and ship each individually. At $9.99 a pop.

Let’s not discuss how many of these various Groupon “steals” I purchased and redeemed. It’s too bad it was too good to be true. I guess I just assume the logical thing would have been to redeem several Groupons in the same order.

BOOOOOONK.

Since I spent half my savings in shipping costs to redeem my Groupons, I felt the need to be thrifty with dinner. Orrrrrrrr I just wanted this 1 pound tenderloin out of freezer. Freezer space is prime real estate in a foodie’s home.

Katie raved about this recipe and whole-heartedly trusting her foodie opinion, I was pumped to try this super easy, very flavorful dish. And that it was. We thoroughly enjoyed this meal and I just as much appreciated how quickly it came together and how great it reheated as leftovers. Easy peasy.

    I LOVE hoisin! I need this meal! Although I have yet to buy a groupon, I have a fantasy that I’ll find $10 massages that all of me and my girl friends can go get and make a wine and spa day happen. Wanna join?? We’ll have hoisin pork afterwards!

    I don’t make pork tenderloin nearly as much as I should and I love anything with hoisin sauce. Also yeah, you gotta watch it with groupon!

    Perfect timing on this one…you posted it when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the pork loin sitting in my fridge. I marinated it overnight on Tuesday and cooked it last night with Soba noodles. So amazingly delicious! My husband even said that I outdid myself…haha if only he knew how easy it was!

    Made this last night. The flavor was right on, though I did add a little extra sriracha. Yum! Thanks!
