We used to go to a Chinese take out place and get some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever had. The thing I really liked (apart from prawn toast) was Char Sui Pork. I would love to make it at home but I didn’t have everything required by this recipe, so I just mixed stuff together that I did have on hand (busy day today). It should be pretty tasty regardless of whether or not it reminds me of the stuff I loved.

Chinese Pork

Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
500 grams pork chops
1/4 cup agave syrup
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon Yoshida’s Gourmet Sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon clove, ground
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds — ground
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 drops red food coloring
1 tablespoon agave syrup


I marinated it for 6 hours and cooked according to the instructions in the original recipe, 350 degrees F for 25 minutes, brushed with marinade mixed with 1 T agave syrup, then brushed again and broiled until charred on each side. I have a package of BBQ flavored rice that I wanted to get rid of and I will stir-fry some vegetables to complete this meal.


For lunch I had German Roulade from the freezer.  I will post a picture and review after dinner. I felt really hungry between lunch and dinner and I ate a protein bar.


While these taste delicious and just like Chinese Barbecued Ribs, they aren’t really like what I was going for. Still this is a good recipe to have.
