Char siu style pork: Combine all ingredients, except pork. Marinate pork in soy mix for 3 hours.

Remove meat from marinade and allow to drip dry on a wire rack set over a tray.

Preheat oven to 200C.

Put meat directly onto oven rack and position a baking dish filled with 4cm water beneath it to catch any fat. Roast for 30 minutes or until cooked.

Asian Salad with Nashi & Chinese Char Siu Pork

Finely slice the pork.

Peel and finely slice the nashi. Place in a bowl of water with the lemon juice to prevent discolouring.

Toss the cucumber, red pepper and watercress in a large bowl. Add the pork and Nashi slices.

Dressing: Mix together the soy, Chinese wine, ginger and sesame oil. Drizzle over the salad, sprinkle with fried shallots and serve.

*Chinese char siu pork is available from Chinese takeaway shops
