Char Siu Recipe per QSis (8/12/1999 9:27:27 AM by Pkirk)
"Char Siu Chinese Marinade"
Char Siu is the unnaturally red-colored meat you see hanging in the window of Chinese food shops. This marinade will give you the same great taste, and color, too, if you use the food coloring. You can fond the Hoisin Sauce and Chinese 5-spice seasoning in Chinese Grocery stores, specialty food stores, and many supermarkets.
Makes about 1 1/4 cups
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons sweet sherry
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (optional)
In a non reactive bowl, dissolve the sugar in the sherry and soy sauce. Add the hoisin sauce, ginger, five-spice seasoning, salt, and red food coloring if you are using it and blend well.
Use the marinade immediately, or store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Allow the mixture to come to room temperature before using.
How to use: This is ment to be used with pork, but it goes quite well with chicken and duck, too. Marinade pork strips 2 to 4 hours or over night in the refrigerator. Its best to use pork butt or country style ribs.
