Watch Daddy Lau teach us how to make char siu! Also known as Chinese BBQ Pork, this is a classic Cantonese dish that’s extremely popular. If you’re new to char siu, it’s an extremely juicy, sweet, and savory pork dish, and it’s a popular entree on its own – and a pleasant addition to many different types of noodles, rice dishes, and pastries like cha siu bao.
