I do love a good old piece of pork on my fork. And all the more when it is BBQ-ed to perfection with oodles of flavour. Just delicious. This pork will not disappoint. Feel free to try the marinade and method on chicken or even whole fish! It is delicious!
The Chinese know how to do BBQ, that is for sure. This is a salute to such a skill, though not strictly authentic...you will still be transported to Singapore or elsewhere as you smell this cooking. Enjoy.

Place honey, sugar, oyster sauce, five spice powder, soy sauce, Chinese black vinegar, Chinese wine, chilli, garlic and ginger into Thermomix bowl and mix 20 sec/speed 8.. Heat 4 min/60℃/speed 1 to form a syrup.
Marinate up to 2 kg of pork fillet slices for several hours. (I marinated for around 24 hours) Cook under a very hot grill until charred and fragrant. (Around 35-40 minutes). Rest before slicing as needed.
Serve on it's own as you would any other BBQ meat, or slice and serve with Char Siu BBQ Pork Wraps.
