When I was still living in a shared house, my housemate would make this amazing Char Siu using pork belly. After trying a piece, I was blown away and I immediately asked for the recipe. I’ve since made tweaks here and there based on what I have on hand and I wanted to share this recipe in hope that other overseas Singaporeans can have a taste of home when the homesickness hits.

I usually save the sauce that is to drizzle on white rice long after the char siu is gone. 😀

Ingredients

600g pork belly (without skin)
3T hoisin sauce
2T honey
2T brown sugar
2T dark sauce
2T light sauce
2T ketchup
1T chinese cooking wine
3/4t grated garlic
1/2t grated ginger
1/4t cinnamon

Steps

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a container large enough to store the pork belly while it marinates.
  2. Dry the pork belly and then coat it well with the sauce. Keep it covered in the fridge overnight.
  3. The next day, shake off the excess sauce from the pork and roast in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for 25-30 min, turning halfway and basting it with some of the sauce. The pork should be a little charred.
  4. Heat up the remaining sauce in a pan until it bubbles. Reduce it slightly and save it for drizzling over the roasted pork and white rice.
