Our local Chinese restaurant makes a killer Char Sui Pork that literally leaves us fighting for the last piece whenever we order it. If you haven't had Char Sui Pork before, it's basically Chinese Barbecue and is full of salty, sweet, and umami flavors that are so tasty. Unfortunately the restaurant version is usually packed with sugar, so although it's delicious, it isn't a dish that you can eat very often. Luckily it is is actually pretty easy to make a healthier version at home. While traditionally roasted, I like to make my Char Sui Pork in the slow cooker so it's almost like a Chinese pulled pork. And since you want at least a little sweetness, add some Stevia (or honey) to the sauce until it is sweet enough for your liking.

This is delicious. We served it with rice for dinner and then in a corn tortilla with fresh cilantro for lunch the next day. Lots of flavor and very satisfying.
