Chashu Pork Cooked with Tea

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

Chashu pork is cooked, flavoured pork and is originally Chinese. 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…
