Char Siu Pork Roast

This is a slow cooker dish. It isn't syn free, but it is so delicious it is worth the syns. Full of lovely Chinese ingredients and the pork ends up so tender and juicy.
It is very versatile too, you can serve it with rice, pasta, jacket potato, or even in a bun as a pulled pork sandwich.

The whole dish is 16 syns on extra easy, i made 6 portions out of  the whole pot.


2 lbs of boneless pork, loin, shoulder or leg, cut all the fat off
¼ cup of light soy sauce
¼ cup hoisin sauce 10 syns
2 tbsp tomato ketchup 1 syn
1 tbsp honey 3 syns
2 tsps garlic finely chopped
2 tsps ginger finely chopped
2 red chillies finely chopped
1 tsp sesame oil 2 syns
½ tsp five spice 
½ cup chicken stock


Combine all the ingredients apart from the pork in a large plastic bag, add the pork and rub in the marinade, marinade for at least 4 hours, i done mine over night.

Place the pork and marinade into the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove the pork and shred it, return to the marinade and warm back through then serve.
