Chinese Roast Pork

Once again, we return to one of our favorite food blogs, Serious Eats, for this edition's inspiration.  Keeping the focus on China, we explore one of the staples of Chinese cuisine, roast pork.

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds pork shoulder (Boston Butt), skinned and off the bone
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup Chinese rice wine, or dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

 

Preparation

  1. Trim the pork of large pieces of fat and cut it into inch-thick strips. Combine the rest of the ingredients, except the honey and ketchup, in a large bowl, adding the sesame oil last to prevent clumping. Reserve 1/3 cup of marinade and set aside. Then add the pork, mix well, and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. The next day, heat the oven to 300°F with two oven racks in the middle. Cover two half-sheet pans with a layer of water and lay cooling racks on top of them. Put the marinated pork on the racks and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Make sure to give the strips of pork some space. Roast for 20 minutes, one sheet pan per rack.
  3. Prepare the glaze. Combine the reserved marinade, the honey, and the ketchup in a saucepan and reduce on high heat for about five minutes until the mixture is syrupy and bubbles start to stack on each other.
