Chinese-Style Roast Pork (Char Sil)

In San Francisco's Chinatown, char sil is often displayed hanging in a market window or layered in pans in Chinese delicatessens or restaurants. This versatile pork works well in stir-fries, lo meins, or dumplings. Wrap leftovers tightly in foil or heavy-duty plastic wrap, and place in a plastic bag. Freeze for up to three months. Serve with snow peas.
