Authentic Char Siu Pork Baked in a Toaster Oven

An authentic tasting char siu pork that's cooked in a toaster oven. It's perfect chopped up ad added to fried rice!! You can make chicken char siu in the same way.


Pork shoulder roast (block)
350 g
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon
Oyster sauce
1 teaspoon
Chinese five spice powder
1/4 teaspoon
Juice from grated ginger
1 teaspoon


1. Cut the meat into 1 cm slices. Add all the flavoring ingredients and rub in. Rest for about 1 hour.
2. Put an aluminium foil lined tray in the oven, and heat. You can do this quickly by heating under a fish grill.
3. If you refrigerated the meat while it was marinating, make sure to bring it back to room temperature before roasting it.
4. Roast the pork for 4 minutes at 740 W. Take it out and brush with the marinade.
5. Turn the pork over, and roast for another 4 minutes at 740 W. Repeat once more (4 minutes x 3 turns for a total of 12 minutes).
6. Crank up the heat to 1000 W and cook the pork on both sides for 1 minute each to brown.
7. Done!
8. If you cut it up into 5 mm cubes, it's perfect for fried rice!
9. This is char siu chicken made with chicken legs. The marinade is the same, but you only have to marinate chicken for about 15 minutes. Adjust the cooking time as necessary.
