My favorite dish
This dish is crispy, a bit sweet and delicious.
I really want to recreate this dish at home
and have looked long and hard to find a suitable recipe.
There are many recipes for Char Siu out there,
so then it was a matter of picking and choosing which one to try.
Char Siu/Char Siew
is pronounced "chow shoo"
and it means "fork burn/roast."
Char Siu is a popular Cantonese dish.
Then the marinade ingredients were mixed together and were combined with the meat in a zip-top bag.
I allowed this to marinate for about three hours.
I lined a roasting pan with foil before placing the rack in the pan.
Then the strips of meat were placed on the rack.
One cup of water was poured into the bottom of the pan.
This roasted at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
I boiled the remaining marinade for one minute
and then used that to occasionally baste the meat.
Jasmine rice and stir-fried veggies accompanied our Char Siu.
There were no leftovers from this meal,
