I was actually looking for something in my old recipe file but couldn't find it. Instead came across this non-bake char siew. Since hubby was going to do the marketing today, I got him to buy me some pork to make this char siew.
Here is the recipe and the step-by-step pictures of how it is being done.
500 gm pork (wu hua)
70 gm sugar
¾ tsp salt
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
300 ml water
a little red colouring powder
2 tbsp oil
Mix sugar, salt, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, water and colouring in a mixing bowl.
Add in pork and marinate for at least 4 hrs.
Pour seasoning sauce in a pot and bring to a boil. Add in pork and let it boil.
Lower fire and simmer meat until tender and sauce thickens.
Lastly add in oil so that surface of char siew will be glossy.
Marinate pork for 4 hours.
Bring the marinate sauce to a boil.
Add in the seasoned pork to the pot and bring to a boil.
Lower fire and simmer pork until the sauce thickens.
Marinate sauce thickens.
Ready to eat char siew.
I have added a little bit of diluted sauce over the char siew.
