Chinese Roast Pork Recipe

2 lbs. boneless pork butt or possibly tenderloin
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 teaspoon five-spice pwdr
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 tbsp. grnd brown bean sauce (available at Chinese grocery)
2 tbsp. chicken broth or possibly water
1/4 c. corn syrup


Preparation: Cut the pork into four 6 x 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch irregular strips. Combine the crushed garlic, salt, sugar, five-spice pwdr, soy sauce, grnd been sauce, and chicken broth. Mix to blend well. Marinate the pork strips in the mix for at least 2 hrs, turning several times. Cooking: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Fill the broiler pan with 1 inch of water and place pan in lowest part of oven to catch drippings and prevent smoking. Take 4 S-shaped metal curtain hooks (or possibly large size metal paper clips) and insert the curved tip of each into one end of a pork strip. Use the other end of the hook to suspend the pork from the uppermost rack of the oven, directly above the broiler pan. Roast the pork for 1 hour. Increase the heat to 425 degrees and continue roasting for 5 - 10 min. Pour the corn syrup into a dish. Remove the pork strips from the oven and immediately dip for warm pork into the corn syrup, turning on all sides for even coating. Slice the strips and serve warm. Makes 6 servings or possibly up to 10 when served with other dishes.
