Everybody making this lately so I had to try some. I used JJ's marinade:
Char Siu... Chinese Roast Pork
1/2C Soy Sauce , low sodium(Kikkoman Green cap)
1/2C Brown Sugar
1/2C Shaoxing Wine* or Mirin
1/2C Hoisin sauce, Koon Chun* is best.
1/2tsp 5 Spice Powder or more to taste
1T Grated fresh Ginger
1tsp Minced fresh Garlic
1tsp Sesame Oil
1T Red Food Coloring (optional)
Makes about 2 Cups, enough for 8Lbs of either Pork Butt and Loin or 2 full racks of Ribs.
Items with an " * " are available at a Chinese Market. The rest and an el cheapo Hoisin is available at your local Mega Mart.
Couple tenderloins marinated overnight
Threw them on the weber with a chunk of apple wood
Let them go for about an hour then put right over the coals for reverse sear
Test pieces mmm
Pulled at 145F and rested
made some fried rice with leftover steamed rice
Great flavor, marinade is awesome!
Try it out
