"Char siu literally means fork burn/roast—'char' being fork (both noun and verb) and 'siu' being burn/roast—after the traditional cooking method." – David&Andrea
Recipe of the Day
Ground Pork Cake with Salty Egg (Haam Daan Ju Yoke Beng)
This is an authentic familiar traditional Cantonese home-style dish. It's a recipe mostly passed on within families, and it is rare to find this dish in any Asian restaurant. Trust me though, it is VERY good. It's actually intentionally salty tasting, so it goes very well with white rice.
