We love the layering of fats and meat from the pork belly. For more health-conscious individuals, you can use pork shoulder for a leaner yet tender pieces of mouth-watering char siew.

This recipe also uses rose wine instead of the tradition Hua Tiao Wine for an extra sweet aroma to the piece of roast.

Roast the Char Siew for 20 mins. Flip and brush more marinade over the pork belly half way through the grilling.

Air Fryer Method

Preheat the air fryer for 5 mins at 180 degree celsius

Add the marinated Char Siew on the baking tray and drizzle a few tablespoons of marinade over. *I used baking tray in order to hold the marinade. If you do not have air fryer baking tray, any plates that can fit into the air fryer can also be used.

Roast the Char Siew in Air Fryer for 15 mins. Flip and add more marinade halfway through the roasting.

Both Oven and air fryer Char Siew will look like this when done. Reserve the caramelized marinade to drizzle over the char siew or for dipping.

*should there be any unused marinade from marinating the char siew, just heat the marinade in a pot over stove top until it thickened. Use it to drizzle over rice or char siew.

Remove the char siew from the tray and slice.

    Hi thanks for your recipe! I tried it and it’s yummy! However, my char Siew is not v charred after 20 mins.. The baking tray with the sauce is charred though. Which settings do u use on the oven? With fan or without?

      Hi there! glad that you like it!

      I used grilling mode from the oven. If your oven do not have this setting, you can use fan mode. alternatively, increase the temperature of your oven. Cause oven temp will still varies from oven to oven even though we set to the same temperature.
