The No Cheat Way to Yummy Char Siew



I’ve had the craving for Char Siew rice (BBQ Pork Rice) for little over a week now during my lunch hours; but I’ve never been able to statisfy the craving due to all the stalls I’ve wanted to eat at having long queues.  So I decided to take it upon myself to try making my own char siew at home.

I managed to pull this recipe from the internet; revised it partially, so here it is my interpretation of making char siew rice.


  • 2 tablespoon of Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kecap Manis
  • 1 teaspoon White Pepper powder
  • 2 tablespoon Honey
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese wine
  • 2 cups Water


  1. Add oil to a heated wok
  2. Add pork and after 5 minutes, add all ingredients into the wok and simmer for 40 minutes or till the pork is tender enough.
  3. Remove most of the sauce.
  4. Caramelize the meat in medium heat. Add some honey. About a minute or two per side.
  5. After the Char Siew is done, coat lightly with some honey

That’s it, you’re done.. how easy was that?
