  • Yield: 1 serving


  • Pork


Perfect for a crowd, these pork wraps are seasoned with Chinese five spice, a classic blend that combines fragrant star anise and spicy Szechuan peppercorns with the sweetness of cinnamon, cloves and fennel seeds.


4 tsp. Chinese five spice

1 Tbs. kosher salt

3/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

6 lb. boneless pork shoulder, cut into 10 large pieces

3 Tbs. vegetable oil

2 yellow onions, diced

1 1/2 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger

1 1/2 Tbs. minced garlic

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup hoisin sauce, plus more for serving

2 Tbs. Sriracha chili sauce, plus more for serving

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

Butter lettuce leaves, steamed white rice, bean sprouts, thinly sliced green onions and cilantro leaves for serving


Preheat an oven to 350°F.

In a small bowl, combine the Chinese five spice, salt and pepper. Rub the mixture evenly on the pork.

In a cocotte or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the oil. Working in batches, brown the pork on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes per batch. Transfer to a large bowl.

Reduce the heat to medium and warm the remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Add the yellow onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce, the 1/3 cup hoisin sauce, the 2 Tbs. chili sauce and the broth and bring to a simmer. Return the pork to the pot. Cover the pot, transfer to the oven and bake, turning the pork occasionally, until it is fork-tender, about 2 3/4 hours.
