Honey glazed Char Siew (3) 蜜汁叉烧

I have made Honey Maltose Char Siew and Chicken Char Siew before and this is another version of char siew,  glazed with honey.  I like my char siew to be slightly sweet and sticky and without the addition of red colouring.   Sliced up to serve, this juicy, tender char siew pairs very well with rice or noodles.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包
