Perfect Char Siu

I've made 'Char Siu' so so many times but this time was the best I've ever made. All by sheer luck and a great piece of pork belly from the butcher. Ask for a half fat half lean piece from the butcher. Only three ingredients needed:-

1.5 kg of pork belly
1 bottle of Char Siu sauce
4 tbsp of thick dark soy sauce
3 tbsp of sugar

Marinade overnight. Preheat oven (fan grill) to 180C. Constantly baste meat with the marinade and turn over the meat till all sides gets caramelised. Leave to cool before cutting into bite size pieces. Enjoy!!
