Char Siu Pork 1 - My first attempt at Cantonese-style Char Siu Pork

It seems only proper that I squeeze in this little recipe for Char Siu Pork after writing about New York’s Chinatown. I didn’t really get to go on a food trip there, but we did eat a late lunch at one of the restaurants, and since we were in a hurry I didn’t bother documenting …
