This Chinese BBQ Pork is deliciously sticky with a sweet and salty flavor!
BBQ Chinese Pork otherwise known as Char Sui is out of this world! A popular Chinese take out dish that is super easy to make at home. So moist and full of flavor!
This Chinese BBQ Pork can be served in stir fry dishes, noodles or just with a side of rice. One of my favorite ways to use the leftovers is in my Classic Pork Fried Rice.
How to make Chinese BBQ Pork
- In a small bowl mix all the marinade ingredients and set aside.
- Cut the pork lengthwise into three even slices
- Put the pork in a dish or large ziplock bag and pour marinade over it. Marinade for 24-48 hours.
- Cover a baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Place the pork on the rack and bake 25 minutes, flip the pork and bake another 25 minutes.
- While the pork is baking heat a small saucepan on medium high heat. Add marinade and bring to a rolling boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low and add cornstarch and simmer 10 more minutes.
- Remove the pork from the oven. Turn the oven to broil and brush the sauce over the top. Broil for 5-6 minutes or until some caramelization starts to form. Flip and repeat.
- Remove from oven let set 10 minutes. Cut into slices.
- Freeze any leftovers for up to three months.
I wanted that dark red color in my marinade, and the red food coloring adds that. It adds no taste to the pork so you could leave it out if you want.
This BBQ pork is super easy you just need to give it a day or two to soak in the marinade, trust me it makes it that much better! Broiling in the oven ensures the crispy and caramelized outer edges everybody loves, and a tender, juicy and moist pork meat on the inside.
