Char Siu is a Cantonese style of BBQ. Traditionally made with pork, especially pork neck. It is combined with rice or used as an ingredient for noodle dishes or stir fries. But also often made with chicken these days, as not everybody likes pork. BTW, I didn’t used red food colouring which is traditionally used in this recipe.
I make a version with pork tenderloin that is very easy and delicious.
3T ground bean sauce
1 T brown sugar
1/2 t five spice powder
2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
Mix ingredients and pour over two 1 pound pork tenderloins. I shake the container a few times to distribute marinade. Marinate overnight in the fridge, then remove garlic… Put in oven at 325 until internal temp reaches 140. Serve with a green vegetable and white rice.
