Char Siew

600 g pork belly (there must be some fat with the meat but if less fat is preferred, then use pork fillet though it mi)

1/2 cup fine sugar

4 tablespoons light soy sauce

2 tablespoons dark soya sauce

1 tablespoon red food coloring

1 teaspoon five-spice powder

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon Chinese wine (I suppose Sherry would do)


1 Mix everything together except the pork.
2 Marinate pork with the mix for about 1 hour (I normally marinate my meats for a longer time) Place on wire rack and roast at 200 degrees Centigrade or 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes.
3 Or, you can fire up the BBQ and roast it in there.
4 (I've personally seen Char Siew roasted over coals in a cut out oil tin with a wooden lid.) Cool and slice.
