Chinese BBQ pork
Preparation Time: 20 minutes plus overnight
Cooking Time: 1 Hour
1.5kg boneless NZ pork shoulder, cut into 10cm wide strips
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp five spice powder
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp molasses
2 tsp sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients except the NZ pork together. Set two tablespoons aside for a dipping sauce.
Add the NZ pork strips to the bowl containing the sauce, and mix well so that the meat is well coated. Cover and place in the fridge to marinate overnight (or for at least 2 hours).
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Place a wire rack in a roasting dish filled with 2 cups of hot water, and lower the NZ pork strips onto the wire rack. Place the pork in the oven and cook for about an hour, removing the pork from the oven after 30 minutes to turn the meat over and baste.
Once the NZ pork is cooked, rest for 15 minutes before drizzling with the dipping sauce and serve on a large platter.
