Recipe information:


Hong Kong Style BBQ Pork


  • RWA Pork Butt / Akakuro Buta Pork Collar Butt Steak
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine (Chinese cooking wine) or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring (optional, for traditional color)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


  1. Clean the pork by rinsing it under cold water, then pat dry with paper towels. Cut the pork into strips about 1.5 to 2 inches wide.
  2. In a bowl, mix the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, honey, sugar, Chinese five-spice powder, Shaoxing wine, red food coloring (if using), minced garlic, and sesame oil to make the marinade.
  3. Place the pork strips in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the pork, making sure each piece is well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight for the best flavor.
  4. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Arrange the marinated pork strips on the wire rack, reserving the marinade.
  5. Roast the pork in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  6. While the pork is roasting, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes until it thickens slightly.
  7. After 25-30 minutes of roasting, remove the pork from the oven and brush it with the thickened marinade. Increase the oven temperature to 425°F (220°C) and return the pork to the oven.
  8. Roast for an additional 10-15 minutes, basting once or twice with the marinade, until the pork is caramelized and slightly charred around the edges.
  9. Remove the pork from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
  10. Slice the pork into thin pieces and serve hot with steamed rice or noodles.
  11. Enjoy your Hong Kong Style BBQ Pork!
