In honor of the Year of the Rooster beginning on Saturday, I thought I’d share one of our favorite Chinese dishes with you: Char Siu. That delicious Chinese Barbecued Pork served in a bright red sauce in Chinese restaurants is so easy to make at home and would be a great way to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
The original recipe calls for pork shoulder or butt, however I usually end up using a pork tenderloin to make is a bit less fatty. Additionally I almost never add the food coloring, which is why my sauce looks a bit paler than that you will find in a restaurant. Same great taste though.
You should be able to easily find all of the ingredients in the Asian section of a well stocked grocery store. If you want to learn more about Chinese New Year and try your hand at making your own e-card with the Chinese symbol for blessing and happiness check out this site.
