Char Siew (BBQ Pork) 蜜汁叉烧

BBQ Pork aka Char Siew 蜜汁叉烧 - A succulent and delicious char siew recipe that is easy for home cooks to make a scrumptious meal for the family. Cooking at home got to be easy and this recipe is kinda foolproof even for beginner home cooks. You can roast it in the oven, air fry or cook on stove top. 

I usually cook this when I know I will have no time to prepare food on the next day. All preparation works can be done a day before. So the next day I just need to cook it - air fry, roast in an oven or cook on stove top. That's simple and that's what I like the best...


300g Pork Tenderloin/ Shoulder/ Butt/ Belly



2 tbsp Shao Xing Hua Tiao Cooking Wine

1 tbsp Sugar


2 Cloves Garlic (Mashed)

2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce

2 tbsp Ketchup

2 tbsp Soy Sauce

1/4 tsp Chinese Five Spice Powder



Served with rice.

Served with noodles.
