How to Make Chinese Barbeque Pork (Cha Siu)
I love to prepare some meals during the weekends because of the busy working schedule. Cooking recipes online make our daily lives so much easier.
Today I am going to share this recipe with you. Hope you will enjoy that. The meat in the picture shows about three times of the recipe. I like to make a lot and save it for other recipes.
1.5 lbs. Pork Roast or Pork Loin ( It is best to use half lean meat instead of all lean), cut into long thick strips.
3 pieces of cut Ginger Root (optional) Sometimes is hard to find at the grocery stores.
3 stalks of Green Onion or Scallion ( chopped in long pieces)
1 Tablespoon of Cooking Wine ( optional) It helps to tenderize the meat.
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
5 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Hoisin Sauce( Can be found in Oriental Grocery Stores) ( I found Lee Kum Kee brand works best for me)
1 Tablespoon of Black Bean and Garlic Sauce(Can be found in Oriental Grocery Stores as well) ( I found Lee Kum Kee brand works best for me)
1 Tablespoon of cooking oil
1/3 Teaspoon of Red Food Coloring (optional) It makes the meat more appealing
Put all the ingredients together in a glass baking dish. Cover that in plastic wrap. Marinade it for a couple days in the refrigerator. You might want to turn the meat over after a day so it would be evenly marinated.
Heat oven in 300 degree, put pork on a baking sheet. Bake it for about an hour. I broiled it for a few minutes on each side at the end. Cool it a little before you cut it into pieces. Pour sauce over pork. Serve with white rice or noodle. It is a great meal.
