    Default Round-eye BBQ pork

    The consumer, not the meat. The kind used on banh mi's.

    Yeah, char siu, siu mei, bbq pork, whatever. I've got a dozen
    recipes, most so in-tents, they're freakin' black. None of those
    Chinese resto versions with a stop-sign-red food coloring candied bark
    us round-eyes have come to expect. That's what all the Viet places
    that serve up a killer bbq pork banh mi serve. Anyone got a wimpy
    white guy recipe?

    Here's a Rhoda Yee recipe from her Chinese Village Cookbook.
    She is Cantonese.

    Char Siu
    6-8 Servings

    one 3 to 3 1/2 lb boneless pork butt
    2 T hoisin Sauce
    4 T catsup
    4 T sugar
    1 T dark soy sauce

    Preparation: Cut pork butt into 4-inch by 2-inch strips. Mix rest of
    ingredients and pour over pork pieces. Marinate at least 4 hours or
    overnight.

    Cooking: Preheat oven at 375 F. Line roasting pan with foil and
    place pork on a roasting rack. Roast a total of 45 minutes, turning
    over once or twice.

    Do-ahead notes: Barbecued pork can be made anywhere from a few days
    to two weeks in advance. Just wrap and freeze. For cold appetizers,
    thaw, then slice just before serving. to reheat, thaw first and
    reheat in a slow oven until just heated through (about 20 minutes).
    Delicious either way.

    Er.. you are looking for a recipe with plenty of artificial colouring in it?
    And you don't want it too authentic?

    Oh yeah. A marinade of ketchup, lots of sugar and soy sauce.

    It's a strange place this group.

    I haven't been here long but already I am beginning to feel like I might be
    trapped in a bizarre looking glass world or a kind of nightmare future where
    people think they are enjoying cooking but actually all they do is watch it
    on telly then mix up different combinations of processed foods and tinned
    products.

    Authentically, Chinese roast pork *does* have lots of red food coloring.
    (Red is a "lucky" color in Chinese superstition.) But I'm not at all clear
    about what notbob wants: Does he want Chinese or Vietnamese? I've got a
    pretty good recipe for the Chinese stuff, but I've never seen exactly what
    he's talking about when he brought "Viet places" into it.

    The package mixes from Noh might be what you're looking for. Super easy.
    I recommend that you forget about adding water to the mix and just use
    it as a dry rub. This mix is kinda red:

    http://www.nohfoods.com/Products/chinesebarbeque.htm

    The Chinese Roast Duck mix is pretty good too except that I've never
    used it on duck - just roast chicken. Gosh, it's tasty. You can use it
    to make roast pork too if you're not into red.

    One of the Noh brothers was a classmate in college. He was pretty
    haolified - we all was. Just call us bananas. :-)
