Char Siu Marinade
(marinates @ 3lbs Meat)
½ cup sugar
3 tblsp sweet sherry
2 tblsp soy sauce
½ cup hoisin sauce
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
½ tsp chinese five-spice powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp red food coloring
NOTES: You could marinate the meat for less time, but you won't get that nice ring of color that this meat is known for.
My favorite cut of meat is the cheap cut of pork shoulder or butt, cut into thin steaks (bone-in).
Marinate for 3 days, rotating the meat cuts once a day.
Mix the sugar into the sherry and soy sauce until sugar is dissolved.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.
Marinate meat at least 2 hours, up to 3 days, no longer.
