Bacon in the curing refer... but until it's ready... Char Siu

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
2 bellies have been skinned ..... the meat is in the cure and refer..... the skin was made into cracklings and sorry to say I ate them all and didn't take pics.... Bride did have a few..... BUT, the is good news... I made Char Sui from the trimmings... It is sooooooo good..... Just thought I'd let you all know what I do with my bacon/belly trim....

Hmmm, never thought of that. I have a few bags of trimmings in the freezer that I figured I'd use with baked beans, but I haven't made beans since last summer. Char sui just might be the ticket!

Chinese bbq pork. Like you get in a Chinese restaurant. Red food coloring is optional when you make it yourself.

Sounds like a couple really good choices - if only you were a couple thousand miles closer!  :icon_sad:

Does anyone else feel guilty that we all eat so well? Char Sui in rice sounds great!

There is a place in Seattle's chinatown that I go to for char sui. Mine is pretty good, but these guys have decades more experience than I do with it. Anyway, I always buy their House Special fried rice to go with it. (This isn't even on the menu, you have to ask for it specially.) It is a mixture of the rice and char sui, but also has their roasted chicken, and fresh salad shrimp (and also a small amount of the rendered pork fat.)  Best rice ever!! You can't imagine how good this is unless you've tasted it.

I know what you mean...... I used to go to the Canucks Hockey games quite often... then head to China Town and have Chinese food in hole in the wall eateries.... no English spoken.... talk with your hands or what ever worked..... that food was sooooooo good.....
