Char Siu Pork Tenderloin

There is always a reason to celebrate! February 3rd, 2011 is Chinese New Year!  The Year Of The Hare (Rabbit). So Happy New Year to all my Chinese Readers out there! To celebrate, I decided to make Char Siu Pork over rice and Chicken Dumplings. I love Char Siu Pork! It is one of my favorite things to order, at Chinese Restaurants! So excited to try making it own my own. If you don’t care to eat pork, this recipe goes well with chicken. I hope you enjoy it!
