If you like Chinese-style Barbeque Pork (Char Siu),
I believe you'll like this recipe.
Sometimes I make Char Siu from small pork riblets, or pieces of pork shoulder, it's also delicious as a marinade for pork chops. I used pork loin chops this time.
.Marinade for Chinese-style Barbeque Pork
.2 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
4 Tablespoons ordinary tomato catsup
4 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon dark soy sauce
Mix marinade ingredients. Place meat in a non-reactive container, or resealable plastic bag. Add enough marinade to cover generously. (If there is any marinade left -- which has not had contact with the pork-- it will keep, covered and refrigerated for a very long time, ready for the next time you make this, or freeze marinade indefinitely.)
Allow meat to marinate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375-degrees (F), oven rack positioned in center.
Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil, and place a roasting rack within the pan. Place the marinated meat on the rack and roast, turning once until done. (If marinade begins to brown too quickly, reduce oven to 350-degrees and continue baking until done.)
Just a note, I usually bake mine at 350-degrees the entire time.
Plain steamed rice and vegetables are the perfect side dishes for this highly flavored meat.
I hope you enjoy it.
