The first thing you might notice when you are in an asian city is the many food stalls hanging colourful red pieces of meat in their show case. These meats are called char siew, or  bbq pork. The meat is marinated and then roasted and grilled over a charcoal grill. It has a delicious mixture of spices that makes you want more. Normally you use char siew in your noodle soups, go together with chicken rice or as a stand alone with plum sauce. Or use it as a filling for those vietnamese gỏi cuốn (fresh summer rolls) You can use a tenderloin, belly or neck from the pork to prepare this meat.
