Enjoy this delicious Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork, even when counting calories or following plans like Slimming World and Weight Watchers!
Sadly supermarket versions are pretty meh when it comes to Chinese Pork, not to mention they tend to be pretty high in calories, Syns and Points. We came up with this slimming version of Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork to accompany our Fried Rice.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Before we get to the Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork… I have to mention that we didn’t cook these on any old BBQ, we cooked them on the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ.
I have to say, I’ve never been keen on gas BBQ’s until this Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ came along.
Cooking on gas outside is just boring – you don’t get any of that smokeyness associated with charcoal.
With the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ you get the best of both worlds. You can use it either with or without charcoal.
Charcoal I hear you cry… Charcoal takes ages to light! Not with this BBQ!!
Simply load the tray with charcoal, then pop in the tray, light the gas for 15 minutes and et voila – your charcoal is lit and ready to grill. It makes this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork so easy to cook.
You can also cook this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork in the oven if you prefer! Just 20 minutes at 180°C and they’ll be cooked.

How Slimming World Friendly is this BBQ Pork recipe?
As long as you cut all the visible fat from the meat, each serving of this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork is only 0.5 Syns.
The Syns come from the Hoi Sin and honey in the marinade. They are both essential to the flavours and creating that sweet Asian inspired sticky glaze.

How Weight Watchers Friendly is this BBQ Pork recipe?
Each serving of this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork is only 2 Points!
You could double up your portions and serve with a side salad of Zero Point foods for a delicious low Point lunch or dinner.
How do I make this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork?
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Remove 2 or 3 tablespoons of the marinade and set aside for basting the pork during cooking.
Add the pork to the bowl and coat them well with the marinade.
Cover the bowl with cling film or place in a food bag and refrigerate while you light up the BBQ (you can make these up the day before to save time if you want)
Spray both sides of the pork with low calorie cooking spray and cook on a hot BBQ for 2 minutes on each side.
Turn the BBQ down to a medium heat (or move the pork to a slightly cooler part of the grill)
Cook for 5 or 6 minutes on each side (basting with the reserved sauce halfway through cooking each side) or until the internal temperature reaches 75°C (170 °F)
Serve this Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork with your favourite BBQ and Summer side dishes.
