Char-shu shig (chinese barbecued pork)

Yield: 10 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 tablespoons Soy sauce
2 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Sherry
2 tablespoons Pineapple sauce
1 \N Garlic clove, crushed
2 pounds Country-style pork ribs
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar

Cut pork into strips 1x1-½ inches and 5 inches long.

Combine ½ tsp. salt and 1 Tbsp. sugar, sprinkle the mixture on the pork strips. Let stand for at least 2 hours. In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients.

Wipe pork strips dry with paper towels and marinate in the sauce for at least 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove pork from marinade, reserving the liquid. Place pork on a rack in a roasting pan lined with heavy aluminum foil. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, dip in marinade and roast another 20 minutes. Remove pork again, dip in marinade. Return to oven and turn the heat down to 250 degrees F. and roast 20 more minutes.

Dip in mixture for the last time and roast 15 to 20 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the pork set in oven for 20 minutes. Slice pork about ⅛-in thick and serve with dipping sauce. DIPPING SAUCE: Hot mustard paste (dry mustard mixed with a few drops of water to form a paste-like texture), combined with 1 tsp. soy sauce.
