This dish is the reason why I live to eat pork. This recipe is by far the best-ever Char Siu (Cantonese BBQ Pork Belly) I’ve tried and tested. So, what are you waiting for? Go put some pork on your fork now.

One dish … This one dish is the reason why I love pork so much. It represents all the best quality of how a pork should taste:
Traditionally paired with chicken rice, wan tan noodles or just plain steamed rice, char siu (Cantonese BBQ Pork Belly) IS one of the most yummy pork dish ever. Hands down! And you know what? If you’ve been going to Chinatown to get those char siu take away – well, forget that. It is unbelievably easy to make this at home from scratch and you’ll be shocked and pleased as to how easy that is.
“I closed my eyes and savour the succulent, juicy, sweet char siu pork belly. So good! So good! I was transported back to Asia, for real.”
