Time 5h10m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 14

⅔ cup soy sauce
½ cup honey
½ cup Chinese rice wine (or sake or dry sherry)
⅓ cup hoisin sauce
⅓ cup ketchup
⅓ cup brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
⅛ teaspoon pink curing salt
1 (3 pound) boneless pork butt (shoulder)
1 teaspoon red food coloring, or as desired
1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste

Steps:

  • Place soy sauce, honey, rice wine, hoisin sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, five-spice powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and curing salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat; reduce heat to medium-high. Cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature.
  • Cut pork roast in half lengthwise. Cut each half again lengthwise forming 4 long, thick pieces of pork.
  • Transfer cooled sauce to a large mixing bowl. Stir in red food coloring. Place pork sections into sauce and coat each piece. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 to 12 hours.
  • Preheat grill for medium heat, 275 to 300 degrees F (135 to 150 degrees C) and lightly oil the grate. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Remove sections of pork from marinade and let excess drip off. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt to taste.
  • Transfer pork sections to grate over indirect heat on prepared grill. Cover and cook about 45 minutes. Brush with marinade; turn. Continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 185 and 190 degrees F, about 1 hour and 15 minutes more. Do not use any more marinade on cooked meat until after you boil it.
  • Place leftover marinade in saucepan; bring to a boil; let simmer 1 minutes. Remove from heat. Now you can use it to brush over the cooked pork.

CHAR SIU (CHINESE BBQ PORK)



Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) image

"Char siu" literally means "fork roast" - "char" being "fork" (both noun and verb) and "siu" being "roast" - after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire. This is best cooked over charcoal, but it's important to cook with indirect heat.

Time 3h40m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 pork tenderloins
½ cup soy sauce
⅓ cup honey
⅓ cup ketchup
⅓ cup brown sugar
¼ cup Chinese rice wine
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
½ teaspoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

Steps:

  • Cut pork with the grain into strips 1 1/2- to 2-inches long; put into a large resealable plastic bag.
  • Stir soy sauce, honey, ketchup, brown sugar, rice wine, hoisin sauce, red food coloring or red bean curd (see Cook's Note), and Chinese five-spice powder together in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until just combined and slightly warm, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the marinade into the bag with the pork, squeeze air from the bag, and seal. Turn bag a few times to coat all pork pieces in marinade.
  • Marinate pork in refrigerator, 2 hours to overnight.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  • Remove pork from marinade and shake to remove excess liquid. Discard remaining marinade.
  • Cook pork on preheated grill for 20 minutes. Put a small container of water onto the grill and continue cooking, turning the pork regularly, until cooked through, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

CHAR SIU



Char Siu image

This is the classic red-cooked barbecued pork that's a favorite in Chinese-American restaurants. It's delicious on its own, but it's also used for dishes like fried rice, lo mein and pork buns. I always keep some frozen and ready. This is also a great dish to cook in the air fryer.

Provided by Jet Tila

Categories     main-dish

Time 9h30m

Yield Makes about 2 pounds pork

Number Of Ingredients 11

1/2 cup (120 milliliters) soy sauce
6 tablespoons (90 milliliters) hoisin sauce
6 tablespoons (90 milliliters) ketchup
1/3 cup (80 milliliters) Chinese oyster sauce
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) honey
1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) sherry
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
2 drops red food coloring, optional
2 pounds (900 grams) pork butt

Steps:

  • To make the marinade, stir the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ketchup, oyster sauce, 1/4 cup of the honey, the sugar, sherry, ginger, five-spice powder and food coloring if using together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Cut the pork into strips 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. Place the strips flat in a shallow baking dish. Pour the marinade over the pork strips and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to roast the pork, position one rack to the lowest part of the oven and another rack about 5 inches above it. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Drain the pork; place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 1/4 cup honey.
  • Place a shallow roasting pan on the bottom rack of the oven and fill the pan about three-quarters full with water. Carefully place the pork strips on the oven rack above the roasting pan so all sides of the pork strips are exposed to heat and all are over the pan to catch drips.
  • Roast the pork for 30 minutes. Baste the pork strips with the honey mixture and roast for 15 minutes and baste again. Roast until the pork strips are crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Remove the pork from the oven and let cool. To serve, slice the strips across into 1/2-inch strips and smother with reserved sauce.

CHAR SIU (CHINESE BBQ PORK)



Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) image

Char siu, or Chinese BBQ Pork, is a delicious Cantonese roast meat. Make authentic Chinatown char siu at home with our restaurant-quality recipe!

Provided by Bill

Categories     Pork

Time 1h

Number Of Ingredients 14

3 pounds boneless pork shoulder/pork butt ((select a piece with some good fat on it))
¼ cup granulated white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon five spice powder
¼ teaspoon white pepper
½ teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon Shaoxing rice wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon red food coloring ((optional))
3 cloves finely minced garlic
2 tablespoons maltose or honey
1 tablespoon hot water

Steps:

  • Cut the pork into long strips or chunks about 2 to 3 inches thick. Don't trim any excess fat, as it will render off and add flavor.
  • Combine the sugar, salt, five spice powder, white pepper, sesame oil, wine, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, molasses, food coloring (if using), and garlic in a bowl to make the marinade (i.e. the BBQ sauce).
  • Reserve about 2 tablespoons of marinade and set it aside. Rub the pork with the rest of the marinade in a large bowl or baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 hours. Cover and store the reserved marinade in the fridge as well.
  • Preheat your oven to 'bake' at 475 F (246 C) with a rack positioned in the upper third of the oven. (If you only have a convection oven, keep in mind the oven not only heats more quickly, your char siu will roast faster than what we have described here). It's amazing how oven temperatures can vary-from model to model, in different spots in the oven, and in how ovens pre-heat and maintain heat. Using an oven thermometer to double-check the actual oven temperature is a great safeguard to monitor your food (I say double-check because even oven thermostat calibrations vary and can sometimes be incorrect). Regardless, be sure to check your char siu every 10 minutes, reducing or increasing the temperature as needed.
  • Line a sheet pan with foil and place a metal rack on top. Using the metal rack keeps the pork off of the pan and allows it to roast more evenly, like it does in commercial ovens described above. Place the pork on the rack, leaving as much space as possible between pieces. Pour 1 ½ cups water into the pan below the rack. This prevents any drippings from burning or smoking.
  • Transfer the pork to your preheated oven. Roast for 25 minutes, keeping the oven setting at 475 F for the first 10 minutes of roasting, and then reduce your oven temperature to 375 F (190 C). After 25 minutes, flip the pork. If the bottom of the pan is dry, add another cup of water. Turn the pan 180 degrees to ensure even roasting. Roast another 15 minutes. Throughout the roasting time, check your char siu often (every 10 minutes) and reduce the oven temperature if it looks like it is burning!
  • Meanwhile, combine the reserved marinade with the maltose or honey (maltose is very viscous--you can heat it up in the microwave to make it easier to work with) and 1 tablespoon hot water. This will be the sauce you'll use for basting the pork.
  • After 40 minutes of total roasting time, baste the pork, flip it, and baste the other side as well. Roast for a final 10 minutes.
  • By now, the pork has cooked for 50 minutes total. It should be cooked through and caramelized on top. If it's not caramelized to your liking, you can turn the broiler on for a couple minutes to crisp the outside and add some color/flavor. Be sure not to walk away during this process, since the sweet char siu BBQ sauce can burn if left unattended. You can also use a meat thermometer to check if the internal temperature of the pork has reached 160 degrees F. (Update: USDA recommends that pork should be cooked to 145 degrees F with a 3 minute resting time)
  • Remove from the oven and baste with the last bit of reserved BBQ sauce. Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing, and enjoy!

CHAR SIU (叉燒) - CHINESE BBQ PORK



Char Siu (叉燒) - Chinese BBQ Pork image

Learn how to make the perfect, juicy, tender char siu, a classic Cantonese favorite!

Provided by Made With Lau

Categories     main course

Time 1h20m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 lb pork shoulder
1 tbsp garlic salt
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp red wine
1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
1 cube red fermented bean curd
1 tsp five spice powder
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp water
0.25 tsp red food coloring

Steps:

  • We'll cut our pork shoulder into long slices, roughly about 1 inch thick.
  • To a bowl, we'll add:
  • Place the meat into a ziploc bag, pour the sauce in, and massage the pork for about 2 minutes so that the sauce is able to finesse its way into the meat. Afterwards, we'll push all the air out of the bag and seal it.
  • Preheat the oven to 425° F or 218° C.
  • Now, we'll be placing the pork into the oven and taking it out periodically to lather it again with either our leftover pork marinade, or honey diluted with water.
  • Once the char siu has finished its last cycle in the oven, we'll lather each side with our diluted honey.

CHAR SIU



Char Siu image

This roasted pork is a staple at Chinese restaurants, typically hung on hooks in front of a display window, glossy red on the outside, juicy on the inside (see Cook's Note). As for the flavor, it can lean either more sweet or savory. We prefer a slightly sweeter char siu with a twist: the addition of peanut butter lends a subtle nutty flavor that makes the meat even more delicious. Serve it over white rice with a Chinese green vegetable, such as bok choy, and a light drizzle of soy sauce. Any leftovers are great tossed into a stir-fry, fried rice, noodle soups or vegetable side dishes. You can also use the meat to make char siu bao.

Categories     main-dish

Time P1DT3h15m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

3 pounds boneless skinless pork shoulder, excess fat removed and cut with the grain into long 1-inch-thick slices
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons Chinese rice cooking wine or dry sherry
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Chinese fermented red bean curd sauce
1 tablespoon peeled, grated ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
2 pieces Chinese fermented red bean curd
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Kosher salt and white pepper (pre-ground or freshly ground)
2 tablespoons honey
Nonstick cooking spray

Steps:

  • Place the pork shoulder in a resealable plastic bag. Whisk together the sugar, cooking wine, hoisin sauce, light soy sauce, peanut butter, red bean curd sauce, ginger, five-spice powder, dark soy sauce, red bean curd, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper in a medium bowl until combined. Strain 1/2 cup of the marinade into a bowl and stir in the honey. Cover the glaze and refrigerate.
  • Meanwhile, pour the remaining marinade into the bag with the pork and "massage" the meat until it's completely coated. Seal the bag, pressing out as much of the air as possible, and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Remove the pork from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  • When the pork is almost ready, preheat the oven to 300 degrees F with a rack in the center position. Line a rimmed baking sheet with 2 layers of aluminum foil and top with a wire rack. Generously spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Lay the pork slices on the prepared baking sheet with at least 1 inch between each slice, then pour 1/3 cup cold water into the baking sheet. Bake, rotating halfway, until the thickest part of the pork registers 145 degrees F on a meat (or instant-read) thermometer, about 55 minutes.
  • Remove the pork from the oven and preheat the broiler on high until super hot.
  • Flip the pork slices over and broil until the surface is dry, about 7 minutes. Brush the top of the slices with about half of the refrigerated glaze. Broil until the glaze is caramelized and bubbling, about 9 minutes. Flip the pork slices over again and brush the top with the remaining glaze. Broil until the glaze is caramelized and bubbling, about 9 minutes. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Cut into pieces, as desired.

CHAR SIU PORK (SOUS VIDE VERSION)



Char Siu Pork (Sous Vide Version) image

Found hanging in the windows of Chinese restaurants around the world, Char Siu 叉燒 or Chinese BBQ Pork is probably one of the most popular Chinese dishes in the world and holds a symbolic status to Chinese cuisine. Originated from the Canton region of China, Char Siu is also known as Char Siew, Cha Siu, Cha Shao, or 叉燒 and so on. This honey glazed Chinese barbecued pork has that slightly charred and signature mahogany color finish with an addicting sweet but savory flavor. Char Siu is best when you use pork shoulder or country-ribs (which are actually pork shoulder that's been cut by butchers into manageable, but thick slabs of pork, resembling a rib (I guess). The point here is, Char Siu needs to have a little fat in it and pork shoulder offers a great lean-to-fat ratio. Pork loin will have a tendency to be dry and not as tender, but in a pinch, will also work. Other cuts that work good are; pork belly, pork cheek, pork neck, pork tenderloin, pork ribs, duck and even chicken thighs, and legs.

CHAR SIU PORK



Char Siu Pork image

Garlicky and savory-sweet, this roasted pork is a mainstay of Cantonese barbecue shops and dim sum houses.

Provided by Andrea Nguyen

Categories     Dinner     Sauce     Pork     Roast

Yield makes about 1 1/2 pounds

Number Of Ingredients 11

2 1/3 pounds boneless pork shoulder, well trimmed (2 pounds after trimming)
Marinade
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
4 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
3 tablespoons light (regular) soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons dark (black) soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil

Steps:

  • Quarter the pork lengthwise into strips about 6 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick. If there are odd-size pieces, they should be of the same thickness.
  • To make the marinade, in a large bowl, whisk together the garlic, sugar, five-spice powder, hoisin sauce, honey, rice wine, light and dark soy sauces, and sesame oil. Set aside 1/3 of the marinade, cover, and refrigerate to later baste the meat. Add the pork to the remainder and use a spatula or tongs to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours, or even overnight, turning the pork 2 or 3 times.
  • Remove the pork and reserved marinade from the refrigerator 45 minutes before cooking. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 475°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a flat roasting rack on the baking sheet. Put the pork on the rack, spacing the pieces 1 inch apart to promote heat circulation. Discard the used marinade, wash and dry the bowl, and put the reserved marinade in it.
  • Roast, basting with the marinade every 10 minutes, for 30 to 35 minutes. To baste, use tongs to pick up each piece and roll it in the marinade before returning it to the rack, turning the pork over each time. The pork is done when it looks glazed, is slightly charred, and, most important, registers about 145°F on an instant-read meat thermometer. Remove from the oven.
  • Let the meat rest for 10 minutes to finish cooking and seal in the juices before using. Or, let it cool completely, wrap tightly, and freeze for up to 3 months.

CHINESE ROAST PORK (CHAR SIU)



Chinese Roast Pork (Char Siu) image

Provided by Robert Farrar Capon

Categories     dinner, weekday, main course

Time 6h45m

Yield Enough for several meals serving 3 to 4 people

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 pounds boneless lean pork (pork tenderloin, boned butt or shoulder, or boned fresh ham)
1 tablespoon brown bean sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken stock or water
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
1 teaspoon sherry

Steps:

  • Cut pork into neat billets about 6 by 3 by 1 1/2 inches and place in bowl. Put brown bean sauce, garlic, stock, salt, sugar, soy sauce and tomato paste in small saucepan and warm, stirring until everything is well blended. Remove from heat and stir in five-spice powder and sherry. Pour sauce over pork; mix to coat all pieces, cover and allow to marinate in refrigerator for at least 6 hours, turning a few times.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a large shallow pan half full of hot water on the bottom of the oven (or on the lowest rack). Wipe top rack, which should be at least 7 inches above the water, with paper towel dipped in vegetable oil. Turn pork once more in marinade to coat well and place pieces directly on the rack, leaving spaces between them but arranging them so that the drippings will fall into the water (the water will also provide moisture during cooking). Bake 20 minutes.
  • Lower heat to 350 degrees and bake 10 minutes more. (For sweeter pork, brush pieces lightly during the last 10 minutes with 2 tablespoons honey mixed with 2 tablespoons marinade.)
  • Remove pork pieces from oven; if it will not be used immediately as an ingredient in one of the following dishes, cool, wrap and refrigerate or freeze until needed. To use, cut into pieces to match the dish you have in mind; for example, dice pork if dish contains diced vegetables.

CHAR SIU PORK



Char Siu Pork image

When my nieces and nephews were toddlers, they loved this oven-roasted pork, tinged with char. They requested it whenever they visited grandma's house, and she would cut it into tiny pieces and serve it atop sticky rice. I share their enthusiasm but savor the pork in many other ways, too: with regular rice, as a filling in steamed bao (page 265), stuffed into baguette sandwiches (page 34), added to wonton noodle soup (page 222), and as part of moon cake filling (page 300). A mainstay of Chinese barbecue shops and a Viet favorite, xa xiu is the Vietnamese transliteration of the Cantonese char siu (thit means meat.) To make the pork look appetizing, it is often prepared with food coloring, sold by the bottle at most Viet markets. But chemical coloring isn't needed here. The marinade imparts an appealing reddish brown.

Yield makes about 1 1/2 pounds, to serve 4 to 6 with 2 or 3 other dishes

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 1/3 pounds boneless pork shoulder, well trimmed (about 2 pounds after trimming)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
2 tablespoons light (regular) soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark (black) soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil

Steps:

  • Quarter the pork lengthwise into strips about 6 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick. If there are odd-sized pieces, they should be of the same thickness.
  • To make the marinade, in a large bowl, whisk together the garlic, sugar, five-spice powder, hoisin sauce, honey, wine, light and dark soy sauces, and sesame oil. Add the pork and use a spatula or tongs to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours, turning the pork 2 or 3 times.
  • Remove the pork from the refrigerator 45 minutes before cooking. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 475°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a flat roasting rack on the pan. Put the pork on the rack, spacing the pieces 1 inch apart. Reserve the marinade.
  • Roast, basting with the marinade every 10 minutes, for 30 to 35 minutes. To baste, use tongs to pick up each piece and roll it in the marinade before returning it to the rack, turning the pork over each time. The pork is done when it looks glazed, is slightly charred, and most important, registers about 145°F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from the oven.
  • Let the meat rest for 10 minutes to finish cooking and seal in the juices. Thinly slice the pork across the grain and serve warm or at room temperature. Or, let it cool completely, wrap tightly, and freeze for up to 3 months. This pork reheats well in a microwave oven.
