Make delicious and comforting Oven Roasted Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) using Pork Tenderloin. This Chinese BBQ Pork recipe is easy to make, and perfect for freezing until ready to roast in the oven.
Servings 4 people
For the Marinade
- 1/4 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 1 tbsp White Sugar
- 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp Gochujang (Korean Red Chili Paste), optional
- 2 tbsp Oyster Sauce
- 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
- 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tbsp Ginger Powder
- 1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice Powder
- 2 tbsp Sake
Combine all the ingredients for the marinade and mix them together in a bowl until they're nice and blended.
In a ziplock bag or big plastic container, add the pork and coat with 3/4 of the marinade. (Reserve 1/4 for later.)
Put in the fridge and let the pork marinate for at least 4 hours. (8 hours or overnight is best.) The longer it marinates, the better it will taste.* If you plan to freeze for later use, freeze the marinade and pork together now.
Oven Roasting the Pork
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Place a metal rack on top. Place meat on the rack. Add 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pan (to avoid the fat drippings from burning/smoking and causing your fire alarm to go off).
Brush the pork tenderloin with half of the reserve marinade. Roast for 20 minutes.
Then flip it over to the back, brush with the remaining marinade and roast for another 20 minutes.
Use a meat thermometer. Remove from oven with the pork has an internal temperature of 145F.
Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Slice thinly and enjoy!
