Sadly supermarket versions are pretty meh when it comes to Chinese Pork, not to mention they tend to be pretty high in Syns. We came up with this Slimming World Half Syn Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork to accompany our Slimming World Syn Free 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 Half Syn 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 Half Syn Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork so easy to cook.
You can also cook this Half Syn Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork in the oven if you prefer! Just 20 minutes at 180°C and they’ll be cooked.
How do I make this Half Syn 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 Frylight 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 Half Syn Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork with your favourite BBQ and Summer side dishes.
For the pork, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.
The pork medallions are lovely and thick, with no visible fat, and they are British.
We also have a few other exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Rapeseed flavours are ideal for this Half Syn Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork recipe.
