20 Mar Melanie's Hoisin Pork
After my family enjoyed my Chinese BBQ’d Pork 2 weeks ago (Char Siu) my brother asked me to make it again for his girlfriend who was coming for lunch today.
I said I would rather make something different but with similar flavours (which I’ve made before). Another popular Chinese dish, Hoisin Pork.Ingredients
