How to cook Chinese Barbecued Pork:
  1. Cut the pork into strips along the grain about 2 inches wide x 2 inches thick and approximately 6 inches long.
  2. Mix the marinade by combining brandy, sherry, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and hoi sin sauce.
  3. Get a zip bag or sealed container and combine the pork and marinade. Marinate the pork slices overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lay the strips on a rack and set on a roasting pan filled with water. Roast for 10 minutes. Then lower the heat to 320°F and continue roasting, flipping and basting occasionally with the marinade for another 35 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let rest for 3 minutes. Brush tops with honey, return to oven, and roast for 4 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over the slices, brush with honey, and return to oven. Roast for 2 more minutes. Slice the roast pork and serve warm or at room temperature. Serve with rice as topping or noodles.
