I’ve been wanting to make my own Chinese BBQ Pork (Primal way) so for sure I can’t depend on store bought sauce as they usually contain loads of sugar, corn syrup, msg, wheat and all other junks.
After researching various different recipes online, I finally came up with my own version and I had to say, this turned out pretty good!
Primal Chinese BBQ Pork (Char Siew)
5-6 garlic cloves
2 star anise
1 Tbsp five spice powder
1-5 Tbsp raw honey
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika powder
1/4 cup tamari soy sauce (wheat free)
3 lbs pork butt
2. Place the pork butt in a gallon size zip lock bag, and rub the marinate evenly. Pierce the meat with fork so it will absorb more of the marinate. Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight for the best taste.
