Cerdo Char siu recipe

Today we'll make a food that I really enjoy, the Char siu Pork, which is a Cantonese Chinese delicacy.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 kg. pork (I use pork needle)
  • 5 tablespoons Hoisin sauce (100 g.)
  • 50 ml. Chinese rice wine (can be substituted for dry sherry)
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (20g.)
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five spice powder got r
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • Star anise (optional) I got r
  • Bay leaves (optional)


    1. Hoisin sauce, honey, sugar, Chinese wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, black soy sauce, Chinese five-spice powder, and white pepper were combined in a bowl. We thoroughly mix everything together until there are no lumps.
    2. Add the pork and combine thoroughly with clean hands, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
    3. The pig is usually cooked on the grill, but today I'm going to bake it. Place the pork on a baking rack in a preheated oven at 200°C and cook for 10 minutes on one side.
    4. We remove it from the oven, turn it over, and brush it with the sauce we have macerated it in before returning it to the oven for another 10 minutes.
    5. We turn the oven off and leave it to rest for another 5 minutes. Meanwhile, the sauce is being prepared.
    6. We put the remaining of the sauce we used to macerate the pork in a skillet and reduce it until it thickens. It is held in reserve by us.
    7. We take the pork out of the oven and it's ready to eat; we cut it into little pieces and serve it with the sauce we've reduced; I also toss in some chives and sesame seeds.
