We had a meal for forty people the other day to “celebrate” a friend’s fortieth birthday. I believe the next step will be to establish a catering company.

So a few of us roll up our sleeves to satisfy as many hungry and thirsty stomachs as possible.

To make it, we cut the pork into strips (sirloin, neck, leg, or loin) and marinate it in a mixture. This will dye the meat an intense orange color, which we will cook on the grill or in the oven. This dish is typically served with rice, sautéed vegetables, or noodles. Furthermore, it can be made with different types of meat, such as chicken in soy sauce or cooked ham.

Yield: 1


We created a menu that included several appetizers, a salmorejo (from the Maite wikicocinera), and the recipe we had on hand: Char Siu pork with Chinese fried rice. It's Cantonese-style marinated meat on the grill (or baked if you don't have one).

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 4 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon salsa hoisin
  • 2 tablespoon to die
  • 2 teaspoon five spices
  • 4 handful basmati rice
  • 2 onions
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 25 prawns
  • 100 gr bean sprouts
  • 2 tablespoonsoy sauce
  • sunflower oil


    1. We begin by preparing the marinade. To accomplish this, we combine all of the ingredients over very low heat. The 5 spice powder must be added gradually or it will form lumps.
    2. Remove from the heat when it is about to boil and set aside to cool.
    3. Meanwhile, we clean the sirloins by removing the nerves and a small amount of fat.
    4. We put 3/4 of the marinade and the whole sirloins in a freezer bag or a tight and tall container.
    5. Allow it to marinate for about 12 hours, stirring frequently and turning it so that all of the meat is soaked.
    6. We preheat the oven to around 200 degrees Celsius. We take the sirloins out of the marinade and slightly drain them; what falls by itself holds the piece.
    7. We cook it for 10-12 minutes on one side and 8 minutes on the other (pouring the marinade that we had saved on top, when we change sides). When a needle does not remove liquid from the meat, it is almost done. The difficult part is getting to the point.
    8. When the meat is done, we can grill it for a couple of minutes on each side (raising the meat near the oven rack) and dipping it in the marinade that we had saved.
    9. To begin, cut the onion into julienne strips and the pepper into strips.
    10. We started the rice and fried the vegetables (onion, pepper and a little later the bean sprouts). The vegetables must be al dente.
    11. In the meantime, we make thin French omelettes with the eggs, roll them up, and cut them into small pieces.
    12. When the vegetables are almost done, add the prawns to the sauce, followed by a little more oil and the rice two minutes later. After two minutes of mixing, add the soy sauce and tortilla. We stir and remove.
    13. We take the pork out of the oven, slice it into one-centimeter slices, and serve it with a side of rice. And prepared! Take advantage of this opportunity!
