Char siu pork
 
A whole week off and all I managed to cook was this.

Char siu pork from my SIL's family butcher shop that was in Los Angeles Chinatown for years. It was very tender and flavorful.

Grandpa Kwock's Char Siu
2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
2 tablesoons Soy Sauce (dark or regular, not light and never lite)
1.5 tablespoons Rice Wine (sha sing wine)
2.5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon catsup
1.5 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup honey

That looks great. I haven't made Char Siu for a long time.

Wow, that looks mighty tasty!

I'll have to give that a try.

A. I thought I removed that from the recipe and put in pork.
B. That cannot be cat, too lean, more likely dog.

looks good..what cut was that?

jestridge 11-29-2009 06:57 PM

Um pork!!!

landarc 11-29-2009 08:08 PM

That was a butt, de-boned and cut into strips. A tenderloin or sirloin can also be used. In fact, the daughter and son of Grandpa Kwock argue about this.

Bob, that looks very very good. Excellent color, perfect char, mmmmmmm!

I love char siu, but have never made it at home where it turned out anything like the restaurant version.

I'm really looking forward to trying this recipe. Thanks for posting it. I hope mine comes out looking like yours!

I'm probably going to use tenderloin, since that would be the easiest.

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with Char Siu. I've got a tenderloin that I plan to cook tomorrow. Is this the marinade? How long do you let the meat marinade? Did you grill or smoke? Thanks

Ditto on not familier with Char Siu. Ate Quite a bit in San Francisco Asian restruants but never ran across it.

Midnight Smoke 11-29-2009 10:09 PM

That sure looks good, Is that a Tenderloin?
