Ingredients:

2 pounds boneless pork butt
----marinade----
2 tablespoons chicken stock
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soybean condiment
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 clove garlic -- crushed
5 drops red coloring
1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
5 drops red food coloring
 

Preparation / Directions:

Cut the pork into long strips 1 1/2 to 2 inches square. Mix all for the marinade and marinate the meat for 3 hrs., unrefrigerated, or 6 hrs. in the refrigerator. Turn the strips every hour or so. Preheat the oven to 350F. Place a large cake pan half filled with water on the lowest shelf of your oven. This will catch drips from the meat and prevent smoking. Place the meat strips directly on an oven rack and put in the top position of the oven. Be sure that all of the meat is over the dripping pan. Roast for 45 minutes without disturbing the meat. Then, turn the heat up to 450F and roast for an additional 15 minutes or until the pork strips are crisp and a rich brown color. Slice the meat and serve it hot or cold--or use in other dishes as directed. *Mein See: The remains of the process of making soy sauce. Very rich soybean condiment used in many Chinese dishes. Can be found in Oriental markets under this name or soybean jam or condiment. Refrigerate after opening.
