    Directions

    1. Make the marinade by mixing together the garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, shaoxing wine, fermented red bean curd, sesame oil and star anise.
    2. Place the pork into a large flat dish and pour over the marinade. Gently massage the meat with the marinade for about 1 minute, cover with cling-film (plastic wrap) and chill for overnight.
    3. Preheat oven to 120°C (250°F).
    4. Place a wire rack on top of a baking tray (pan) and lay the marinated pork on top. Roast for 30 minutes, turning half way. Turn up the oven temperature to 200°C (400°F) and continue to cook for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the pork is cooked all the way through and juices run clear or the internal temperature is 70°C (160°F).
    5. Allow to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing. Serve over a bowl of steaming rice with the juices poured over the top. Enjoy!
