Not sure what to have for dinner? Try your hand at this delicious, take-out inspired dish that we love for pretty much any occasion! It’s homemade Char Sui or Chinese BBQ Pork.
2 pork tenderloins
½ cup soy sauce
⅓ cup honey
⅓ cup ketchup
⅓ cup brown sugar
¼ cup Chinese rice wine
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
½ teaspoon red bean sauce or food colouring (Optional)
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (Optional)
- Stir together all ingredients aside from the tenderloin in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until just combined, 2-3 mins.
- Pour the marinade into a ziploc bag and evenly coat the pork. Let it marinate in the fridge at least 2 hours.
- Remove pork and shake to remove excess liquid. Save remaining marinade to make a sauce later.
- Cut each pork tenderloin in half and brown all sides in a cast iron pan on high heat – around 4 mins depending on tenderloin size.
- Transfer to the oven at 350°F until they hit an internal temp of 145°F, takes about 30 mins.
- Sauté your selection of vegetables and boil your noodles (optional) to serve with the pork.
- Add reserved marinade to the pan and cook to reduce and thicken slightly. Pour it on top of the sliced pork, veggies and noodles when ready to serve!
