/ Char Siu Recipe. Chinese BBQ Sauce/Marinade

Char siu is typically bright red. This is due to food coloring. We like it without food coloring as food coloring does not effect the taste. This sauce is a sticky sweet and very tasty marinade for pork BBQ. It is also a good dipping sauce for chicken wings and fingers. Not bad for a unique hamburger either.


  1. 1/2 cup Hoisin Sauce
  2. 1/2 cup Bourbon, not in original recipe but taste better than chicken stock
  3. 1/4 cup Honey
  4. 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  5. 2 tablespoons Sesame Oil
  6. 2 tablespoons Hoy Fong's Sriracha hot sauce or your favorite hot sauce
  7. 2 tablespoons minced fresh Ginger or ground ginger
  8. 2 teaspoons minced fresh Garlic
  9. 2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  10. 2 tablespoons Onion powder
  11. 2 teaspoons red food coloring - optional

For use as a marinade: Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together thoroughly. Place pork and char siu marinade in a zip lock back and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight before cooking.

For use as a sauce: Place all ingredients in a sauce pan. Warm to a simmer. In a small bowl mix together 1 teaspoon of corn starch or arrow root with 1 Tablespoon water. Add starch mixture to warm ingredients and bring to a boil, return to a simmer and stir until it thickens. Remove from heat and place in a bowl to cool slightly. Warm slightly before use.
