2 1/2 pounds fresh side of pork, lean, with skin on 1 teaspoon salt ***MARINADE*** 1 tablespoon soybean condiment (mein see) 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar 1 clove garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
Lay pork on a board, skin side up, and pierce it all over with an ice pick. Rub salt into the pork on both sides. Mix all of the ingredients for the marinade together. Place meat on a broiling-pan rack, skin side down, and rub the meaty side with the marinade. Let stand for 1 hour.
Heat the oven to 350F. Turn the meat skin side up, and place the pan on the middle rack in the oven. Roast, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours, piercing the skin in many places with an ice pick. Do this 3 or 4 times during the baking. Then, turn the oven on broil and broil the meat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the skin is crisp. Be careful that you do not burn the meat at this point. You want it to be a dark golden brown.
Chop into bite-size pieces and garnish with green onions. Or use the meat in other recipes.
