    My apologies…I haven’t tested this yet because I can’t find chu hou paste, but I do intend to soon.

    1 1/4 C sugar

    1/4 C salt

    1/4 C hoisin sauce (plus 1 TBL)

    2.5 TBL chu hou paste (or 2.5 TBL of extra hoisin)

    1/3 C dark soy sauce (plus 1 TBL)

    1/4 C Shaoxing wine

    1/4 TBL Chinese 5 spice powder

    2.5 lb pork butt, cut into 1” thick steaks

    2/3 C honey

    1 C water

    Excluding the “PLUS” ingredients, mix first 7 ingredients and marinate pork overnight or 3 hours.

    Heat grill, close lid and roast until 155 degrees F, about 45 minutes.

    Add extra TBLS of hoisin sauce, dark soy sauce, honey, & water. Bring to boil and reduce until slightly sticky. Cool to room temperature and brush glaze over pork.

    Serves 4 (this is NOT a mistake…according to Men’s Health, 10 oz of meat is a single serving.

    This sounds delicious!! However, it made me giggle that it came from a ‘health’ magazine considering how much sugar is in the glaze (sugar, hoison and honey). But damn I’d like to eat this!
