Char Siew (BBQ Pork)

Tuesday, March 2, 2010


Backdated post:


I had made this yummylicious BBQ pork for our Kuantan gang gathering in my place. Well, it can be consider as a pre-CNY gathering too. Definitely lots of laughter bombarding our usually peace and quite neighbourhood. We had a great time enjoying each other's company and also a adults turning kiddos Wii session too. I had prepared some dishes for the night. Char Siew which is one my favourite food was presented at the dining table for our guests for the lovely night. Certainly a good dish to accompany my Hainanese Chicken Rice (minus the chicken though) ... :) and they can even be eaten on it's own.

Ingredients:
1kg belly pork / 3 layer pork- cut into 2 inches strips and scored

(A)
5 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp soy sauce
1/2 - 1 cup sugar (according to level of sweetness you wanted)
2 tbsp Mei Kuei Lu Chiew (Chinese rose wine)
1 tsp 5 spice powder
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper

(B)
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp oil

Methods
  1. Marinade pork with (A) for 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
  3. Transfer marinated pork on the tray and cover up with the foil.
  4. Bake at 220 Celsius for 1o-15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven. Open the top foil and bake again until the gravy thickens and pork was well coated.
  6. Turn the pork over to ensure an even roasting. (until it is slightly charred)
  7. Take the Char Siew out and dip into (B) and return it to the oven to roast for a while to give the meat a shiny coating.
