BBQ Pork (叉烧肉)

One very popular Chinese dish BBQ Pork (叉烧肉). It’s actually quite easy to make 🙂

Choose pork with a bit more fat, such as pork shoulder。I happen to have a piece of pork presa(松阪肉) at home. I know, its too good for bbq 🙂, but special time, use whatever you have 👍

Easy Recipe:

  • 3tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp oyster sauce, 1.5tbsp rose wine or rice wine or regular cooking wine, 2~3tbsp honey, 2tsp red yeast rice powder (if you don’t have, can skip), 1/2 tsp black pepper, mix well
  • cut pork to 2~3 inch wide chunks, put them in a freezer bag, add the sauce, add some garlic and ginger slices
  • close the bag. Refrigerat for 1~2 days

I took it out after one day. Now, let’s cook it:

  • preheat oven to 400F
  • put the pork on a bbq rack, and make sure you protect the baking pan well with foil for easy clean (picture 1)
  • mix 2tbsp honey, 2tbsp oil and 2 tbsp soy sauce and 1tsp red yeast rice powder (picture 2)
  • brush the pork with the sauce
  • bake for ~10 minutes, take out, flip, brush sauce on the other side, bake for another ~10 minutes (picture 3)
  • take out, let it cool, cut to thin slices.
  • enjoy!
