Chinese Roasted Pork aka Char Siew Recipe (蜜汁叉烧)

“Authentic Char Siew with my heirloom recipe – Yummy & Juicy Roasted Pork that whets your appetite.”

‘Char Siew’, is actually Cantonese pronunciation. It means ‘fork roasting’. Why is it being called as ‘fork roasting’? It simply refers to its cooking method, long strips of marinated pork meat which are skewered with long forks, and roasted in a large covered oven using charcoal. This is a traditional way of making this dish. Char Siew is one of the famous “roasted flavours (烧味)” in Asia, especially Hong Kong. Char Siew (叉烧) is also well-known as Chinese roasted pork, barbecued pork and Cantonese-style honeyed pork. More

“- Children’s favorite dish – Make your own sweet and savoury sauce for your child!”

Cooking dishes with sweet & sour sauce are my forte. It’s loved by anyone, especially the children of its savoury taste, sweet with a little bit of pleasant sourish kind. I love to make this dish as it is simple and yet, flavorsome. I called it as sweet & savoury sauce here, because the
sauce I made here is kinda different from the normal sweet and sour sauce I’ve made. So, call it Sweet & Savoury.
