Honey Maltose BBQ Pork (Char Siew) 蜂蜜麦芽糖叉烧 ~ 2


Recently I tried  another version of making BBQ pork (Char Siew) ....... with honey and maltose.  As it was my first encounter with maltose, I had a hard time measuring it out with a tablespoon as it was indeed very, very sticky.  Then it dawned on me to try dabbing the tablespoon with some oil before measuring out the sticky liquid and it certainly did the trick :)   As for the Char Siew, it was good and fragrant as I drizzled on some Shaoxing wine before slicing it up to serve.




Recipe for Honey Maltose BBQ Pork (Char Siew) ~ 2

Ingredients
  • 1 kg pork belly without skin
  • 4.1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 4.1/2 Tbsp maltose
  • 2 Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 3.1/2 Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1.1/4 tsp five spice powder
  • A dash of pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Shaoxing wine
Method
  1. Combine honey, maltose, dark and light soya sauces, five spice powder and pepper in a saucepan.  Keep stirring and heat up lightly.  Let cool.
  2. Pour the cooled sauce over the pork belly and let it marinate overnight in the fridge.  Cover with cling wrap.
  3. Place the pork belly (thawed at room temperature) in a wok, add 1/2 cup water and cook on medium heat.  Once the meat is tender, dish out some sauce and reserve it to serve with rice or noodles.  Let the meat cook in the remaining sauce till semi-dry.
  4. Place the meat on a parchment lined tray and grill for 2 mins. on both sides, remove and drizzle over the Shaoxing wine.
  5. Slice up the meat and serve with white rice or noodles.

  10. Hi Sokehah,

    Most char siew recipes is about taste, but your method of cooking it is brilliant. I remembered coming across the best char siew from a restaurant in Hong Kong, tender and delicious;y flavored like taste of char siew that we all know. I tried a few recipes and the taste is always there. I tried yours and the char siew just melts in your mouth, came out just superbly tender and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
