I made this with a pork tenderloin and then ended up using it the next day in some pork fried rice. I thought the flavour was excellent. I will definitely be making this again.
I absoluteIy love char sui and thought this was the best char sui that I've ever made. It really was beautiful. I live in a european city with the oldest chinese community and it was comparable to the char sui sold in many of their best restaurants.
im marinating my tenderloin in this now. I plan on using it to make some pork buns. the sause tastes wonderful
