Chinese Char Siu Pork Recipe (Chinese Style Cooking Recipe)

Welcome to Xiao’s Kitchen. My name is Xiao Wei, ever since my Mother taught me how to cook at an early age, I have always had a strong passion for Cooking. My family still live in Inner Mongolia in the northern part of China, where I visit each year and pick-up new Asian/Chinese recipes.

1 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce

3. In a shallow dish, mix 1 Tbsp of the honey, soy sauce, cooking wine, Hoisin sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic and Chinese five-spice
4. Place the pork into the dish, massage the sauce into the meat – ensure an even coverage, cover and leave to marinate in fridge for 8 to 10 hours

6. Line a baking tray with baking paper and then set a wire rack on the tray
7. Place the pork on the rack with gap in between, reserve the marinate sauce

@Xiao’s Kitchen Hi, I noticed when the sauces, spices and wine were stirred, it looked like it was bubbling 2:37 and I saw some smoke 2:42 (up close). But the next scene when the pork was placed in the baking dish, it was on a cutting board. Were my eyes playing a trick on me?

Great video! However, unless I’m missing something, you do not tell us what temperature to set the oven for roasting the pork?

Eugene Nyunt says:

Imagine the unfortunate creature having her throat slit, then thrashing about on a cold concrete warehouse floor, before finally bleeding out after an eternity of unimaginably excruciating pain. You say you’re rational, sensitive, modern, and love animals ?! Think again if you eat suffering, dementia, obesity, rank B.O, cancer, and thoughtless evil.
