Char Siu or Chinese inspired BBQ Pork Recipes.


So Naomi gets the first go even if the cooker was not ideal (Indiegogo) :palm: Some more detail in the video description but the basics are below.

14 grams of garlic salt
70 grams of sugar
30 grams oyster sauce 蚝油
30 grams light soy sauce 生抽
14 grams sesame paste 芝麻酱
30 grams hoisin sauce 海鲜酱
5 grams Shaoxing wine 绍兴酒
5 grams five-spice powder 五香粉
1 gram of red food coloring- optional
150g winter honey 冬蜜 (I think it makes a difference but regular honey will also work and most people use it)

1 kilogram of pork shoulder (pork butt).
Instructions for butcher if you get it in your local Chinatown: 用来做叉烧的猪肩肉(梅花肉)

Mix, massage, and marinate in a plastic bag for 6-24 hours.
Prepare 50/50 mix of winter honey and water for basting

Preheat oven or smoker to 176℃ - 350℉
Cook for 15 minutes
Baste both sides with the honey/water mix.
Cook another 10 minutes at 176℃ - 350℉ then baste both sides again.
Set the temperature to about 223℃ - 435℉
Check the internal temperature of the pork with a meat thermometer. 62℃ - 145℉ is our target- don’t overshoot that.

Tonight's slightly warmer version heading to the BBQ soon  :)

Not an exact science here but I did use my Metric Eyeballs to measure the ingredients because I am not an 'ignorant savage'  :-DD

This is about the mix for 500g of Pork in this case Rashers (Pork Belly) but pick your cut of choice.

3-4 Tablespoons of spicy Plum Sauce (home made)
1 Tablespoon Light Soy
1 'slosh' of Shaoxing wine
1/2 tsp of Chinese Five Spice
2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Chilli (I cheated and used bottled)
2 tsp Sesame Oil
Good shake of the bag containing Szechuan pepper

Marinade overnight if possible but 6-8 hours is ok too.

Serve with Veges, Rice or just as it comes. 'Stunt' Cooked Pork was from a few weeks ago, Assorted Veges, Bamboo Shoots and some Water Chesnuts and a very similar marinade.
