BBQ Char Siew Pork

This is a very easy recipe for char siew. All it needs is 10 minutes to do the marinade, and waiting time for the meat to soak up the lovely sauce. I omitted the sesame oil, shallot oil, and ginger juice, and it was still perfectly yums. (Also, E did not allow me to use the red food colouring so visually it doesn't look as nice as those sold by hawkers/ restaurants. )
500g pork
Marinade: 3tbs sugar, 1/2 tsp red colouring, 1 tsp dark soya sauce, 1 tbs honey, 1/2 tbs oyster sauce, 1+1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp light soya sauce, 2 tbs water, 1/2 tbs ginger juice.
Pre-grilling: 1 + 1/2 tsp sesame oil, 2 tbs cooking oil, 1 tbs wine.
Glaze: some dark sauce, shallot oil, and honey
1. Season meat with marinade and leave for at least 4 - 5 hours (or overnight).
2. Add the pre-grill ingredients to the meat-marinade mixture just before grilling.
3. Grill for about 25 to 30 min.
4. When ready, brush with glaze mixture.
