Preheat oven to 350°F.

Put five-spice powder, dry mustard, ginger, pepper, and salt into a wide, shallow dish and mix well. Roll pork in spices to coat all over.

Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium high heat. Add pork and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown all over. Transfer skillet to oven and cook until pork is just cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board and set aside to let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, warm hoisin sauce in a small pot. Cut pork into thick slices and serve hot, with a little hoisin sauce spooned over the top of each slice. Garnish with green onions.
