Old Style Char Siew

This time I cooked in the air fryer (200C) but you can cook in the oven. It will be quicker to cook in the air fryer. Turn over the meat once half way of cooking. This is not a very sweet Char Siew, if you like it sweet, please increase the quatity of Maltose.

500 g pork belly (skinless, strip) or pork shoulder
Char Siew mixture (in a small bowl):
25-30 g fermented red beancurd/Nam Yu
1/2 tbsp Nam Yu water/sauce (in the same jar)
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsps Maltose/Malt sugar or more
3/4 tsp five spices powder
1 1 /2 tbsps Shaoxing wine or rose wine
Marinate the pork with the Char Siew mixture overnight. Bake it in the preheat oven at 200C for about 20 minutes. Turn over the other side and continue to cook for another 10-20 minutes or until cooked (It depends on how thick the meat is).
Keep the remaining mixture sauce in the small pot and bring it to the boil until absorbed and thick. Pour the sauce on top of the Char Siew.
