BBQ China

Rated 5/5 from 2 Customer Reviews

The big and bold flavours of BBQ from China...

All across China, purveyors of shaokao (Chinese for BBQ) lure customers to their stalls with the tantalising smells of grilled meat and vegetables. Here we're using typical Chinese spices such as star anise and cassia along with black cardamon to coat succulent pork ribs, and cumin (or ziran - which arrived in China via spice routes from the Middle East) in the marinade for lamb chops before being charred on the BBQ.

Alongside there’s a pepper and potato dish called di san xian, an umami-laden chilli sauce, fragrant aubergines and a pickled cabbage salad sprinkled with sesame seeds.
