This recipe is super easy, as long as you can remember to marinate the pork before you cook it. I added a few drops of red food coloring to my marinade because I wanted a nice rich color, but you could just as easily leave it out if you prefer. Cutting the tenderloin into four pieces provides you with more surface area for the marinade to work into, which gives you more of those wonderful crusty pieces.
If you have been to Chinatown, I am sure you have seen BBQ meats such as roast porkduck, chicken, etc. To many Chinese, the mere mention of char siu would conjure up a mental picture of juicy, tender, savory, fatty BBQ pork belly dripping in a savory, sticky, and super delicious sauce, sliced into thin pieces and served with steaming white rice. A good char siu, when done right, is one of the best things to savor in the world.
Estimated values based on one serving size. Good but not great! Add homemade ssamjang sauce google it.

There is no Chinatown in Zurich. In fact, the Asian population here is very scant, but we are lucky to have a few amazing Chinese and Vietnamese grocers, as well as a growing number of south-east Asian restaurants. That said, I still miss being able to pop into Chinatown to pick up something for a quick dinner.
Not dry at all. And the flavor especially when smoked is outstanding! At my favorite Chinese restaurant, they will serve this with the main entree alongside the fried rice.
Char Siu is definitely one of them. Char Siu is a bbq pork. The pork is marinated with a sauce made up of five spice powder, hoisin sauce, and honey.
