Char siu pork




  1. Whisk all the ingredients for the marinade together. Marinate the pork in the marinade, reserving about 3-4 tbsp for basting, for at least 7-8 hours and up to two days.
  2. When ready to roast, preheat the oven to 275 degrees F and move the rack to the upper middle position. Place the pork on a rimmed baking sheet and let it roast for 1 hour or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, basting with the reserved marinade every 10-15 minutes or so. At this point, you can char the pork on broil for a few more minutes to develop some caramelized bits, but for filling, I thought one hour was enough.
