BBQ Pork (Char Siu) with Spring Onion Oil & Ginger Sesame Noodles

25 minutes
1 hour 25 minutes

Juicy, succulent pork tenderloin mixed in a rich, sweet and sticky marinade then roasted in the oven to perfection resulting in the most melt-in-your-mouth tender and umami bursting char siu everrrrrr!!  

I used the @pureetyathome char siu marinade glaze which had really authentic flavours and added sesame oil, Shaoxing rice wine, soya sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, molasses, garlic and honey… this combination of sauces transforms the tenderloin into such gorgeously sticky and scrumptious deliciousness.

Served up with some Hong Kong style spring onion oil drizzled on top as well as ginger & sesame noodles with some garlic braised pak choy, the most stunningly satisfying dinner!! 😍


  1. In a large bowl combine the sesame oil, Shaoxing wine, sesame oil, soya sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, molasses, garlic, sugar, salt and char sui marinade, mix well to combine
  2. Remove 2 tbsp of the marinade into a small bowl, set aside
  3. Add the pork tenderloins to the bowl with the marinade and mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight
  4. Preheat the oven to 280°C 
  5. Place an oven rack on top of an oven tray with the marinated pork on top, pour 2 cups of water into the oven tray and roast in the oven for 25 minutes
  6. After 25 minutes, turn the oven temperature down to 180°C, rotate the pan, top up the water in the bottom tray and roast for a further 15 minutes
  7. Now make the basting sauce by mixing the reserved 2 tbsp of marinade with the honey, loosen with 1-2 tbsp water
  8. Baste the pork with the sauce, flip again, baste the other side and roast for another 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 75°C, careful not to burn the edges but they should be slightly charred
  9. Remove the tray from the oven and baste with any remaining marinade, rest the meat for 10 minutes
  10. Slice and serve with a drizzle of spring onion oil, ginger sesame noodles and your choice of greens


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and mix well, set aside until ready to serve


  1. In a bowl add the ginger, garlic, and 2/3 of the spring onions
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat warm the oil for a few minutes then turn off the heat and add the ginger/ garlic/ spring onion mix as well as the sliced carrots
  3. Let the mixture infuse a few minutes then stir in the rest of the spring onions
