Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)

This recipe is a replica of the wonderful barbecue pork that can be seen hanging in Chinese restaurant windows known as Char Siu.

A pork tenderloin is marinated in a simple soy based marinade seasoned with garlic, ginger, and Chinese five spice before being smoked.

Once cooked in can be served alone or in one of the many other Asian recipes that use this as an ingredient including spring rolls and fired rice.

1 pork tenderloin

2 cloves garlic, finely diced

1/2 inch ginger, finely diced

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon shoaxing rice wine or dry sherry

1 tablespoon honey

pinch salt

Chinese five spice to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon
