Chashu Pork Cooked with Tea

Chashu pork cooked with tea (紅茶煮豚チャーシュー)

This version is simple to make and uses less condiments than the original. I cook at least 4kg in one go and keep it in the freezer. There are not many take away place around here, so this chashu meat helps me a lot, with rice, with salad, for bento, for sandwiches, for fried rice, and for ramen etc…
