Sticky Chinese BBQ Pork | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

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.

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.

  1. I just made this in the oven and had it with the dirty fries!!! So nice and feels so naughty! The pork was so easy to do and my two teenage boys enjoyed it too! Can’t wait to try it on the bbq. x

    1. Hi Kelly
      The recipe explains that you need to reserve a little marinade for basting, then place the pork medallions into the rest of the marinade until ready to cook. (You can do this the day before.) You don’t cook the pork before marinating. 🙂

    1. Hi Suzanne
      They’ll probably need a minimum of an hour to marinate in the fridge, but you can leave them for a bit longer if you’d like to. 🙂

    1. Hi Diane
      You could use white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar or just try lemon or lime juice. Hope that helps. 🙂
