Here is one for you BBQ foodies. I am looking for an authentic Char Siu (chinese bbq sauce/marinade) recipe. I have several and not one is like what I can get at a carry out and typically are almost black (like motor oil) in color. Char Siu I have had in the past are red and have a flavor that may be 5 spice, not sure.
If anyone has a tested recipe for char siu I would really appreciate and will share a pretty good Bourbon BBQ sauce in exchange. Please only send recipes you have tested and are not black in color or out of the can.
