Star Anise Red Wine BBQ Pork Slice, is a marinated pork that we always have for BBQ. Fresh Pork shoulder marinated with homemade star anise, red wine, garlic, palm sugar, salt, black pepper, olive oil and light soy.
In Cambodia, we use rice wine to soak the star anise and make the most of the fragrant of this rice wine. We love to marinate some meats with this kind of wine. This is a family secret that my grandfather made back in the 1980s because our family produced the most amazing rice wine in the area and sold them locally. I was too little remember everything but grandpa passed them all over to mum and dad.
Years went by, we moved to Phnom Penh and we didn't make rice wine anymore but the recipe still there. Now mum is a master of making star anise rice wine and marinating sliced pork shoulder. We love love it so much.
At this time of the year, I think it's a great idea to make this dish so that you can have something new and different from other normal BBQ items. I hope you will love this as we do!

About your cook, Iris (St Ives):
Hi, I'm Iris. I'm originally from Cambodia. My first memory of connecting with food was when I was little and my mum was always busy in her shop, so she left the house work and cooking to me. As the eldest child in the family, I had to learn to cook and did the shopping as guided by mum. I remember I learnt to cook my first curry chicken when I was just 12 years old. At first, I wasn't sure that I loved cooking because it was like a duty to me. Cooking really inspired me when I had my own kids. I'm a mum of three and my husband and kids love my food, this has inspired me the most and allows me to learn more about different foods and always cook with love.
