"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."

dark soy sauce
whole star anise pod, crushed
Chinese five-spice powder
aji mirin (sweet rice cooking wine), or more to taste
1 (1 pound)
boneless pork loin roast
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.
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!
Not even close...
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!
