Chinese Barbecue Pork (Char Siu Pork)

A delicious, slightly sweet, roasted pork that's popular in Cantonese cuisine. Marinate for at least 3 hours to get the best flavour out of this sticky & sweet pork dish.

Prep: 3 hours
Cook: 30 mins
Serves: 4
    • 500g pork tenderloin + extra honey
    • 15g sugar, brown
    • 25g honey
    • 40g Blue Dragon Rich Hoisin Sauce
    • 10g Blue Dragon Oyster Sauce
    • 40g Blue Dragon Light Soy Sauce
    • 40g Blue Dragon Dark Soy Sauce
    • 10g five spice powder
    • 10g Blue Dragon Sesame Oil
    1. Place the marinade ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to simmer for just 30 seconds, then set aside to cool. Marinate the pork and put in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
    To Roast
    1. Take the pork out of the fridge and bring it to room temperature.
    2. Preheat oven to 180'C. Line a baking tray with foil or baking/parchment paper and place a rack on top.
    3. Remove pork from the marinade.
    4. Mix 1 tbsp. honey into marinade. Roast for 25 minutes in 150 C.
    5. Around halfway through roasting, baste generously with the reserved marinade. Dab it on so you get as much marinade on the pork as possible - this is key for getting the thick, glossy glaze.
    6. When the pork is cooked, switch the oven to the grill. Baste the pork very generously with the remaining marinade then grill the pork until it is nicely charred and caramelised - around 2 to 3 minutes.
    7. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
    8. Serve with rice and steamed Chinese greens. It is also great to serve on noodle soups, or chopped up inside Chinese pancakes or steamed buns.
