  • Prep

  • Serves



  • 1 kg. pork, whole
  • 2-3 tsp five spice powder
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Knorr Liquid Seasoning
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 pcs. bay leaf
  • 2 pcs. star anise
  • whole black peppercorns

Let's Get Cooking

  • 1 Let’s begin this popular and classic Chinese dish by marinating the pork in a mixture of five spice powder, soy sauce, garlic and Knorr Liquid Seasoning for at least 1 hour.
  • 2 After an hour, transfer the entire mixture to a pot and add water, bay leaf, star anise and peppercorns. Bring this to a boil at high heat and reduce the heat to simmer to slowly cook the pork until it is tender and syrupy. Adjust the seasoning by tasting the sauce.
  • 3 To serve the Pork Asado, slice the pork into serving pieces with the sauce on top. For that resto look, sprinkle spring onions on top.
  • 4 Who says you need to go out for a real good Chinese dining experience? Home cooked Chinese food beats any resto dish especially when it’s cooked by mom.
