This is another one of my mom’s recipes. Yay! When my family lived in the peaceful country, because of my father’s job (teacher), my mom used to make a lunch box and deliver it to him at school. In the morning, I woke up with this awesome smell. “Wow, mom is cooking meat balls for dad’s lunch box. @.@” I sat next to her and enjoyed watching her cook.
Jul Think of this dish as Chicken Teriyaki with a South Asian flair, or India meets the other flavors of Asia. It sounds exotic but it’s actually pretty easy to make.
Char siu is a brilliantly versatile thing. Even if you’re not familiar with it by name, you’ve almost certainly tasted it before; it’s the reddish pork that appears in little pieces in every Special Fried Rice in every Chinese restaurant and takeaway in the country, in those wonderful fluffy buns you get as dim sum ( my recipe for those buns is here ), on its own over rice as a roast meat, and sliced thickly in a million different noodle dishes. It’s a sweetly glazed, aromatically spiced, perfectly delicious piece of meat, and one of my very favourite things to do with pork. This recipe makes a single fillet of char siu.
Happy New Year! (Any excuse for revelry is OK by us – especially if you can wish folks a happy new year twice within months.) For the Chinese, and many other Asian cultures, today is the first day of the lunar calendar. In some parts of the world, this occasion will be met with great fanfare and festivity.

Jun 25, 2008 The kids at home loves eating pork and I think it runs in the family and I think my kids have the gene from my family side. All of us are meat eaters and I trying to cut down on meat and have more green vegs. The padeatrician advised me to give Ee-Thern more fat meat i.e : fatty pork, chicken skin, fish skin or fish oil… cos he is still underweight although he ate a lot everyday. At the age of 3 yrs old he still looks like a baby to me and he has baby face just like Dearie Suki. I make my own version of Steamed Siew Mai for breakfast one of the weekend and my kids love it and Dearie Suki love it too.
