The sweet, sticky and savoury roasted pork strips are almost always served with rice and often with some steamed pak choi on the side. We've put a twist our pak choi by sauteeing it in a sweet soy and red miso sauce which will really make you want to eat your greens!

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Marinate the pork

    Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

    Use a knife to make 4 or 5 shallow slashes along the pork fillet to help it cook evenly. 

    Mix the HOI SIN SAUCE and the BLACK BEAN PASTE together in a bowl and marinate the pork in the mixture, getting it right into the cuts, then put on a tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, make some rice

    Cook the rice as per packet instructions. 

  • 3.

    Fry the veg

    About 5 mins before the rice and pork are ready, heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the garlic (if having) for 30 secs.

    Add most of the spring onions (keep some back for garnish) and the pak choi and stir fry for 3-4 mins.

    Take the pan off the heat and stir through the SOY & RED MISO SAUCE. 

  • 4.


    Slice the pork into wide slices, then serve with the rice and veg and sprinkle with some spring onions.


Char Siu BBQ Pork Reviews

BASED ON reviews

Shirley - Dec 10, 2019

Lovely juicy tasty pork!

Kiran - Dec 09, 2019

Nice dish, very quick to throw together, felt the flavour was lacking something though...couldnt quite say what though

Roisin - Dec 08, 2019

Loved the pork, that was 5 star. I found the sauce for the pak Choi really unpleasant, I couldn’t eat the veg

Lizzie - Dec 05, 2019

Really easy and incredibly tasty

Joanne - Dec 05, 2019

Ok could do with a sauce as it’s a very dry dish

DAVID - Dec 04, 2019

Very tasty, combination of flavours makes it, pork was beautiful sauce is flavoursome, I liked the pak choi too

Siobhan - Dec 01, 2019

Didnt have half as much flavour as i thought it would....even with the added garlic

fiayo - Nov 30, 2019

Flavours weren’t great to be honest.

Jonathan - Nov 29, 2019

YUM. used cabbage instead of Pak Choi, because Pak Choi is gross

Elena - Nov 28, 2019

Not very impressed, first recipe that gets less than 4 starts for me but my husband said it was quite nice, I guess I might not like those specific flavours

Carly - Nov 26, 2019

Lovely taste but not enough to coat all of the meat. The season for the pak Choi was not pleasant at all

Karen - Nov 26, 2019


Ellen - Nov 25, 2019

Needed some extra sauce from somewhere to go with the rice, but the Pak Choi was very good!

Helo - Nov 21, 2019

Liked it

Arlene - Nov 20, 2019

Great tasting pork

Clare - Nov 19, 2019

Enjoyed this

Asha - Nov 17, 2019

Pork flavour is amazing, rice needed something extra as was a little too plain with the dish

Kirsty - Nov 17, 2019

This dish looked so promising but didn’t live up to my expectations. The flavour is more black bean rather than Char Sui. I really love Chinese dishes and char Sui is one of my favourites so this certainly didn’t live up to expectations. Although not terrible and is tasty enough if you want to give it a go. I agree with one of the other reviews that this one needs work to be a little more authentic. 3/5 not amazing not terrible & certainly edible.

Michael - Nov 17, 2019

Top the meat when its finished cooking, but you knew that right?

Sam - Nov 17, 2019

The pork was lovely and tender but we didn’t like the sauce used on the pak Choi, was quite bitter

Holly - Nov 13, 2019

I loved it

Sarah - Nov 13, 2019

I'm sorry to say, but in my opinion this needs work by Simply Cook, the added seasonings etc not nice, ended up binning. Really disappointed as char siu is normally one of my favourites.

AMANDA - Nov 13, 2019

Love simply cook but this probably one of the worst. Veg cooked great, pork cooked great, rice perfect but recipe lacked flavour and depth. Totally disappointing, yack...

Ian - Nov 10, 2019

Not one of the best dishes

Lo - Nov 09, 2019

Wasn’t as flavourful as others

MATTHEW - Nov 08, 2019

Delicious and very easy

Angie - Nov 05, 2019

Not for El!

Carys - Nov 05, 2019

What a disappointment. Everything lacked flavour. Most bland dish I've ever had.

Angela - Nov 04, 2019

Absolutely lovely, very simple but impressive

Dawn - Nov 02, 2019

Loved this one really nice and flavoursome I made it with mashed potatoes instead of rice and it was gorgeous

Peter - Nov 02, 2019

Really tasty and my daughter has begged me to get it again

This recipe was absolutely a winner! Definitely going into my top 3 dishes from SimplyCook!

Simply delicious!

Catherine - Oct 27, 2019

Delicious. I added asparagus to the other veg.

Gail - Oct 26, 2019

Lovely meal definitely have again ????????????????????

Claire - Oct 23, 2019

Very nice tasty meal, I did however over cook the pork, my fault, but flavours were lovely.

Michelle - Oct 22, 2019

Quick and tasty. Definitely ordering again

Anthony - Oct 22, 2019

I add too much rice (my fault entirely of course), however this was very tasty and I would certainly recommend.

Heather - Oct 21, 2019

Not my favourite ok but doubt we’ll have it again

Gaynor - Oct 20, 2019

Not my favourite dish

Rigs - Oct 19, 2019

Loved it, but in my opinion it needs a little bit of sauce to be spot on. But that is just my opinion.

Beth - Oct 19, 2019

The sauce for the Pak choi had a horrible smell and after taste which meant I had to bin it. Think it might have been the powdered miso? Great method to cook the pork (came out lovely and tender) but it was really salty and the hoisin wasn't the best

Malgorzata - Oct 19, 2019

Very nice and quick to cook ????

Deborah - Oct 17, 2019

Tasty and easy!

Robin - Oct 17, 2019


Rigs - Oct 16, 2019

Really nice but in my opinion it needs a little bit of sauce. But that didn't stop me from having a clean plate

David - Oct 14, 2019

Flavour profile doesnt work. Quite bland.

Rachael - Oct 14, 2019

That's not char siu pork. This has been the most disappointing of all dishes had so far.

Deborah - Oct 13, 2019

Not for me.

Helen - Oct 13, 2019

I used pork steaks instead of fillet but it worked really well - the combination of black bean paste and hoi sin sauce was delicious
