 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Shao xing
  • 1/3 c Soy sauce
  • 1 tb Sugar
  • 1 tb Ginger, fresh; grated
  • 1 Garlic clove; minced
  • 2 1/2 lb Boneless pork rib end roast
  • 1/3 c Catsup
  • 1 tb Mustard, dry
  • 2 ts ;Water


Combine the sherry, soy sauce, sugar, ginger and garlic, blending well.
Place the pork roast in a dish or plastic bag, add the sauce, and brush
over the meat or close the bag tightly and turn to coat the meat with the
sauce. Marinate at room temperature 2 to 3 hours or in the refrigerator

This cut of pork is best cooked on a grill with a cover or on a spit. If
you do not have a spit or grill with a cover, shape a loose tent of foil
over the meat to hold in the heat and help prevent flare-ups while cooking.

Remove the meat from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and place on a
grill 6 to 8 inches above a drip pan surrounded by hot coals or with the
coals pushed to the back of the grill. Brush the meat with the sauce and
grill 1 hour, basting and turning as needed to cook evenly and prevent
flare-ups. Test with a meat thermometer. When the internal temperature
reaches 160 degrees F. the meat is thoroughly cooked but still tender and
juicy. A thick roast might require 30 minutes longer.

Just before the meat is done, mix the catsup into the remaining marinade
and brush over the meat. Turn and glaze the meat over the drip pan. Remove
the meat to a serving plater, cover loosely with foil and let stand 30
minutes. About 10 minutes before serving, mix the dry mustard to a smooth
thin paste with the water. Slice the pork roast thinly and serve the catsup
sauce and mustard sauce separately, or swirl the mustard into the catsup

"I was a young woman in Miami when I first had what my date called Chinese
roast pork with hot and heavenly sauce. This is my adaptation, after I
learned that the restauranteur's 'hot and heavenly' is American catsup and
