Chinese Roast Pork
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
12 servings
20 years ago I took Chinese cooking classes, and our teacher recommended Chinese Cooking for Beginners by Huang Su-Huei. This recipe is from that book, slightly modified. It's a nice basic roasted pork, very easy to make. I use it for fried rice, ramen soup and in steamed Chinese buns. Prep time does not include marinating time. Update: Since posting the recipe, I am cooking low-sodium and no longer add the salt to the recipe as the soy sauce is salty enough, as is low-sodium soy sauce.
