BBQ Pork (Char Siu) Board

This Asian-twist to a Charcuterie board is a veritable feast on a tray! With Charcuterie boards being all the rage, why not try something different? I’ve made a grazing board a couple of times now using this BBQ board and my guests/hosts have appreciated it being different, but they loved the taste as well.

Method: Click here to make the Char Siu following this recipe

Time: 10 minutes not including the time to make the Char Siu

Servings: 10-15 people as an appetizer (along with other appetizers)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Warm crusted French Bread
  • Fillings (4 cups char siu slices)
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup rice vinegar (sub apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 3/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 3/4 cup julienned radish (daikon or regular)
  • 3/4 cup cucumber cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup cilantro sprigs
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced jalapenos, optional
  • 1/2 cup mayo with Sriracha sauce mixed in, if you like it spicy

Method:

  1. Slice and keep aside 4 cups of char siu slices in 1-2 serving bowls that will fit on your charcuterie board or arrange them on the board
  2. Mix the warm water, vinegar, sugar and salt until the sugar is completely dissolved. Divide the mixture into three small separate serving bowls and add the carrots to one bowl, radish to the next and cucumber to the third bowl. Best to let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving
  3. Mix the Sriracha sauce with the mayo and place in a small serving bowl on the charcuterie board
  4. Cut the French bread into thin slices (preferable on a bias) and arrange on the charcuterie board
  5. Place cucumber springs and jalapeno slides either on the board or in a small serving bowl
  6. Guest will lather slices of the bread with the mayo and layer it with meat and vegetables for a delectable treat (makes it a deconstructed Banh-Mi sandwich!)
  7. Manger!
