From the Test Kitchen

In this take on Chinese barbecued pork (or char siu, a favorite of Cantonese cuisine), we’re using ketchup, hoisin sauce, and more to recreate the beloved sweet and savory glaze. It’s all served with fluffy jasmine rice tossed with bok choy sautéed with our aromatic blend of ginger, garlic, and scallions.
