Savory pork roast recipe for the barbecue. Use this Chinese spiced pork alone, in stir-fries, or in soup. Serve sliced with veggie fried rice, Asian coleslaw, and grilled pineapple. This pork is tasty sliced and stir-fried with snow peas and onion. It's supreme in pho and excellent sliced into wonton or udon noodle soup. Best summer adaptation: in buckwheat or soba noodles for a cold salad.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine honey, hoisin sauce, dark soy sauce, star anise, five-spice powder, and aji mirin in a glass measuring cup. Set microwave oven for 60 percent power and heat in microwave oven for 22 seconds. Stir mixture and pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork loin to the bag, knead to coat meat with marinade, and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to two days.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove pork roast from bag and wrap meat tightly in aluminum foil. Discard used marinade.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roast reads 155 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 50 minutes. Let meat stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Didn't have anise or aji mirin or dark soy sauce. I substituted white rice wine and normal soy sauce instead. I doubled the sauce so that the pork was completely covered in a tub and marinated for 2 days. Hubby loved it! Read More

I've marinated it for two days, it tastes nice, but nothing like Char Siu - the easiest correction Icould think of would be, add much more honey into the marinade. Read More

I quadrupled the marinade to do a couple of pounds of pork tenderloin. Next time I will let it marinate for 2 days but after one day it was very good. Thanks for sharing! Read More
