ISO - Recipe for Chinese BBQ Pork

Does anyone have or know of a recipe for that wonderful 'reddish in color, sweet, dripping with flavor BBQ Pork' like the kind you get in Chinatown in San Francisco? I love that stuff but don't get up there often. Would love to know how to make it myself

The name of the sauce is Char Siu Sauce. It is Cantonese in origin, I believe. This site has a recipe for it: Char Siu Sauce Recipe - Food.com - 459993 But this is just one site.
There are a host of recipes if you google the sauce.

Hope this helps.

1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup malt sugar or honey

2 tsp Ginger, grated
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.

Roast the pork on a rack over a pan with water in the bottom.

Roast the pork at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
Be sure to turn the pork occasionally.
Finish the pork by roasting for a few minutes at 500ºF. Let cool and slice thin.

It tastes just as good without the red food coloring in it...

Char Siu
2 Tbls Rice wine
2 Tbls Hoisin Sauce
2 Tbls soy Sauce
2 Tbls Honey
2 Tbls Maltose
½ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp Sesame oil
¼ tsp 5 spice powder
¼ tsp white pepper

If you want them to look like the ones you had in Chinatown you will have to add food color. I never use that stuff.

I like to cook them on the grill.
