Char siew recipe by meatman

I have tried this and it appears simple and easy to execute! There is no need for special sauce purchase.

I obtained the recipe from meatman  but I cut down to a quarter of the recipe to fit into my air fryer at 160 degree for 15 min, glaze and continue for another 15 min at 180 degree.

Below is the original recipe. I will continue trying for other char siew recipe as there is a few variations!

Servings: 6

  6. 2 tbsp of dark soy sauce

  1. Cut 2kg of pork shoulder
