The char siew pork used for this recipe is super easy to make as it doesn’t involve any roasting of meat. Simply marinate thinly sliced pork (those pre-packed for shabu shabu will be ideal) and stir fry them in the pan which will only take a few minutes to cook.
Of course, you can use store-bought char siew sauce but I do find it too sweet for my liking. Instead of adding sugar, I chose to use honey just to give that subtle sweetness of the char siew flavour while keeping the sauce coating balanced. Enjoy!
