I tried your recipe tonight, with the addition of ginger, on a pork tenderloin. I was able to marinate it for 8 hours.

It tasted great. I like it better than my version. However, it came out a little wetter than I'm accustomed to with my recipe. I'll have to allow for that next time around.

Thanks.

suggest wiping as much mari off before cooking or hitting it with 500F degree heat for last 10 minutes of cooking

Hi guys, I've been away from DC for sometime. That's probably why I've been in a cooking rut. This char siu idea is just great so I'll try this one out soon.

Just need to ask a stupid question: what's the purpose of the pan of water under the meat in the oven? I suspect it's so the meat doesn't dry out but I'm not sure...

TIA!

You would be correct, also it collects fat that drips off.

1 tablespoon rice wine or sherry
1 tablespoon chinese 5 spice powder
1 teaspoon red food coloring (opt)

Mix all ingredients except the pork to make a marinade. Marinate the pork for at least 2 hours; overnight is even better.

The trick is the cooking process. I hope there is something in the top of your oven that you can wire the pork to so it can hang free during the roasting with a pan of water placed directly beneath it.

Roast the pork at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Let cool and slice thin. Serve with hot mustard and toasted sesame seeds.

If you do not have a way of hanging the pork you can use a perforated pan placed on an upper shelf directly above the pan of water. Be sure to turn the pork occasionally.
Obiwan, I just tried your recipe. The meat tasted great but the outside appearance needed improvement (It was pale and wet). You mentioned in an earlier post that the meat must be finished with high heat for caramelization but I don't see that in your recipe.

I would appreciate if you can clarify the finishing process. Thanks!

P.S. Thanks BBQMikey for responding to my question.

the recipe is meant for industrial application in an industrial kitchen
and customers that do not appreciate dried out char siu and we also reheat it in a 500 degree oven
so as i mentioned before, one might try turning up the oven to 500 for the last 10-15 minutes of cooking

Thanks Obiwan.

Since the meat stays in the oven about 20 min only, I find the addendum of turning up the last 10-15 minutes to 500F to be somewhat critical to the success of this recipe.

Another question on process: Since the pork loin is essentially being steamed in the oven (given the pan of water) resulting in a pale and wet char siu, if I want a successful caramelization at 500F for 10-15 min, shouldn't I remove the pan of water?

TIA!
