Char Siu Pork
Char Siu, or Chinese BBQ pork is one of the most popular pork dishes in Chinese/Cantonese cuisine. If you have been to Chinatown, I am sure you have seen BBQ meats such as (roast pork, duck, chicken, etc.) hanging in front of the Chinese BBQ restaurants.
To many Chinese, the mere mention of char siu would conjure up a mental picture of juicy, tender, savory, fatty BBQ pork belly dripping in a savory, sticky, and super delicious Char Siu sauce, sliced into thin pieces and served with steaming white rice. Char siu is the epitome of the Cantonese BBQ dishes. A good char siu, when done right, is one of the best things to savor in the world. My recipe will teach you how to make the best char siu!
Char Siu Sauce
Before you marinate the pork belly, you will need to make the Char Siu Sauce, which consists of “nam yue” or fermented red bean curd, maltose or honey, soy sauce, oyster sauce, five spice powder and ground white pepper. These ingredients mingle together to produce the most amazing, sweet, savory, sticky sauce that marinates the pork belly before roasting in the oven. You can make a few servings and keep them in the fridge.
Best Chinese BBQ Pork
I have another Chinese BBQ Pork recipe, but this is the BEST Char Siu recipe ever! The taste reminds me of the best char siu in Malaysia, found at the many chicken rice stalls there. This recipe is two thumbs way up. Try it and you will agree with me!
