Although its preparation does take some time, char siew or Chinese roasted pork is not difficult to make at home—and it is definitely better than the garishly red commercially prepared versions. If you have a good pork butcher, ask him to cut the meat for char siew and he will slice it into strips of the right dimensions. You can also slice the pork yourself using a sharp chef’s knife.
