Charsiu is a Cantonese specialty featuring slowcooked pork traditionally seasoned with honey, bean curd, five-spice powder and a mix of hoisin and dark soy sauces. This is considered a siu mei, or roasted meat dish, commonly featured in Chinatown shops selling other preparations like steamed chicken and roast duck. Like other siu mei, char siu often accompanies plain white rice, perhaps with a side of simply prepared vegetable like gai lan, or Chinese broccoli. Char siu is the key ingredient in char siu bao, a dim sum staple consisting of a baked or steamed bun stuffed with pork and sauce.
