Roast Pork (Char Siu)

5 September 2008 No Comment

Char Siu is akin to “barbecued pork.” A great filling.


4 servings


  • 2 14 lbs lean pork butt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. dark soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Jack Daniels
  • 3 1/2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/8 tsp five-spice powder


Cut pork into strips 1 inch thick and 7 inches long. Pierce meat repeatedly with a small knife.

Mix all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Place pork in a roasting pan, lined with foil. Pour over marinade ingredients and refrigerate, 4 hours to overnight.

Preat oven to 500 degrees. Place pan in the oven and roast 30-50 minutes until cooked, basting and turning the meat several times. Add water if the sauce dries out.

Remove from oven and cool before using.
