char siu

aka Chinese roast pork

3-4 pork chops, boneless
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon five spice powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
pinch of pepper
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Hoisin sauce
1 teaspoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon molasses
1 tablespoon oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon hot water

Combine all these ingredients in a large zip-top bag
make sure the chops are well coated
refrigerate overnight

Preheat oven to 400℉

Line a baking sheet with foil (you’ll thank me later)
place a metal rack on the baking sheet
place the marinaded chops on the rack

Bake for 20 minutes

Let rest before slicing and serving.

These freeze really well, left whole, wrapped tightly with plastic and foil. After thawing, reheating in a toaster oven worked perfectly, crisping up the marinade.

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
