Sticky glazed slow-roast pork neck
Wonderfully tender and juicy, the slow-cooked pork is beautiful when glazed with a Chinese-style sauce and roasted for a weekend dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) chinese cooking wine or medium dry sherry
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup (75g) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 clove garlic, crushed
  • 5 centimetre piece (25g) fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 kilogram piece pork neck
  • 1 1/2 cup (375ml) water

Method

  • 1
    Combine cooking wine, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, oil and star anise in a medium jug. Place pork in a large dish, pour over half soy mixture, turn to coat pork. Reserve remaining soy mixture for serving. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight, turning pork occasionally.

    Place pork on a wire rack over a baking dish, reserving marinade for basting. Pour measured water into the base of the baking dish. Cover tightly with foil.

    Place pork in the oven, reduce temperature to 160&degC (140&degC fan-forced) and roast, 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove foil and roast for a further 1 hour or until pork is tender, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade.
