Quick 5-Ingredient Char Siu Sauce Recipe Will Be the Star of the Show by Donna John
When I made Chef Hiroaki Mitsui's quarantine ramen recipe, my protein of choice was pork. To add flavor to the pork chops, they were marinated a few hours in this homemade char siu sauce. Amazing! They were the star of the dish.
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes if using as sauce
Total Time: 5 minutes if using as sauce
Servings: Makes about 1 cup
- 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used lite soy sauce)
- 3 tablespoons sherry cooking wine
- 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
Here's how to make it:
- If using for a marinade, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Pour over your protein and allow to marinate for a few hours before cooking.
- If using as a sauce, combine all ingredients in a small pot and bring to a simmer. Serve warm as a dipping sauce.
