I always love char siew, whether it’s char siew or char siew bun or even the sauce. I guess it’s the sweetness plus a little rice wine and hoisin scent that I love. Anw, I bought this ready made char siew sauce and I thought I would give it a try. Turn out it’s pretty good. If you don’t have the time to make the sauce from scratch, I really recommend that you try this one. I usually buy char siew bun whenever I go to chinatown bakery, and with this new recipe, I don’t have to anymore, it’s just perfect!!!
