Our Family's Recipe for Char Siu Pork

An easy and delicious char siu pork. It keeps well, so it's convenient if you make it in advance.

Ingredients: 3 to 4 servings

Pork butt (shoulder roast) block (or other cut you like)
500 g
Soy sauce
90 ml
Sugar
60 g
Sake
20 ml
Green onion or scallion
the green part of 1 stalk
Ginger
2 to 3 slices
Garlic
2 to 3 slices

Steps

1. Brown the lumps of meat on all sides in a pan while fipping them.
2. Put all the flavoring ingredients in another pan. Add the green onion, ginger, garlic and browned pork. Cover with a lid and simmer over high heat.
3. When the lid starts clattering from the built up steam, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Flip the meat over and simmer for another 15 minutes.
4. Take the lid off, simmer until there's only a little liquid left in the pan, and it's done.
