...Real Chinese Take Out

I'll admit that every so often I really crave 'Chinese' take out food, and by that I mean those Western classics like lemon chicken, beef and broccoli stir fry, or my all time favourite ginger beef. What might surprise you though is that Chinese people really like their take out meals too, the only difference being that when we decide to go that route we head straight for the Chinese BBQ meat store. 

Our favourite place is Sun's BBQ Restaurant. It's a good idea to arrive early in the day/afternoon otherwise all the delicious BBQ pork, duck and Char Sui (sweet roasted pork) will be all gone. Just head up to the counter and order your desired meat by the pound. The secret is to get the meat unsliced so you can heat it up in your home oven and carve it yourself to get the perfect combination of crispy skin and juicy meat.  If you are a meat lover and never had Chinese BBQ you are definitely missing out!

Ingredients: (serves 4 -6)
- half BBQ duck
- 1 lb roast pork
- 1 lb char sui
- steamed rice
We forgot to ask them not to slice (It was still good though!)
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

2. Arrange your BBQ meat in an oven proof dish and roast for 15-20 minutes just until the meat is heated through and the skin is nice and crispy

3. Slice the meats to your desired thickness and serve over rice with the various dipping sauces provided by the restaurant
