Char Siu Pork
April 5, 2010 by bellasbistro
I’ve come to a tough conclusion – I do not like hoisin sauce. I know…it’s so sad! I’ve tried it a few separate times and each time I just don’t love the flavor.
I debated whether or not to post this, but since Christopher really enjoyed the dish, I decided to go ahead and post. Just because I’m strange and don’t like it doesn’t mean that others won’t love it.
I found this recipe on Cate’s World Kitchen.
2lbs. Pork butt or loin
4t. Soy sauce
4t. Oyster sauce
1T. Chinese rice wine
4t. Hoisin sauce
1/8t. Ground white pepper
Cut the pork into slices about 1/2″ to 1″ thick. Prick all over both sides with a fork.
Line a roasting pan with foil. Place the pork in a single layer in the bottom of the pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients and pour over the meat. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate 2 to 4 hours.
Heat the oven to 450 F. Place the roasting pan on a rack in the middle and roast for about 25 minutes (turning and basting every 5 to 6 minutes). If the sauce dries out, add some boiling water to the pan.
Remove from the pan to cool slightly. Serve over rice.
