Sweet yet savory. Juicy yet crispy. Popular for its versatility, Char Siu can be wrapped in baos, served with wonton noodles and can also to be enjoyed on its own with a plate of steaming rice.
Traditionally roasted in a chinese oven to achieve a charred yet glistening roasted pork. Here’s an easier alternative to recreate Char Siew at home by braising it in a wok then charring it in the oven to achieve the infamous char in Char Siew.
