Char Siew/Siu

I've got a broken nail while peeling potatoes so can't do much cooking and washing :'(  And I'm typing this with one hand, feels so handicapped.

Just to share what I've cooked for dinner some weeks ago, homemade char siew/char siu.  I always use my trusted AMC recipe but today I decided to try Baking Mum's recipe with some modifcations.  The taste is very much the same. 

Can you spot my little one hiding at a corner?  She was trying to pinch some food off the plate.  My kids love homemade Char Siew/Siu :-)

Char Siew
500 gm pork shoulder (wu hua)
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp rice wine
1/2 tsp sesame oil
some pepper
a few cloves of garlic

PS: For instructions and step-by-step pictures, please visit Baking Mum's blog for I didn't follow her instructions as I cooked using AMC method.

I like the char siew. Looks succulent! I too have AMC pots but I have yet to make char siew. Perhaps I'll try out your recipe! :)

Hi Blessed homemaker,

your char siew looks juicy and well done. I tried doing char siew twice but I used the wrong brand/type of meat - air pork frozen meat. the meat is totally no good! has a porky stench to it.

I've not tried using air flown frozen pork to make this but I do get the porky stench when I cook them in soup/stir fries.
