Char Siu Chicken

Char Siu.  In Hawaii, we all grew up eating this in so many ways. A few slices in your saimin, chopped up in fried rice, straight from the meat hook at the China Town roast pork and char siu man's stand, inside a manapua (char siu bao).

  • Char Siu Sauce (from Taste of Aloha)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Aloha shoyu soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1/8 tsp. Chinese Five Spice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. sherry
  • 1 tbsp. Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp. red food coloring (optional)

Cooking Process:

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Place boneless skinless chicken thighs in a zip top bag and marinate meat 24-48 hours.  Grill on a med-high heat for about 8 minutes.  Flip chicken and grill for an addiitional 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and no longer pink.

This sauce may also be used on pork for real char siu.

* I usually make a double recipe to soak my chicken. This ensures that each piece is well coated.
