Anyone has the recipe to Chinese BBQ sauce ?!

Question: Anyone has the recipe to Chinese BBQ sauce ?
BBQ sauce that they make at Chinese places always taste so good anyone ever worked there and knows the recipes. Thanks


Chinese Barbecue Sauce

5 -6 minced fresh garlic cloves
1 piece fresh ginger, minced
1 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup sherry wine
1/2 cup soy sauce (low-sodium works too-)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
3 teaspoons red food coloring

1 Mix all ingredients in a bowl,( or a jar with a tight fitting lid), until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until you are ready to use it.
2 *You can set aside some for use as a dipping sauce, but you must first bring it to a full rolling boil, over med. heat, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer until it is thick, and slightly reduced.
3 **When you are ready to cook, marinate meat for 4-24 hours, turning once every two hours. You then grill or broil the meat until it is cooked through,(and slightly charred- this adds to the flavor!).

If you are talking about Authentic Cantonese roasted pork (Cha Siu), then, you are asking the marinade of Cha Siu! You can't put the sauce on the meat and roast it right away. Here below is the ingredients and preparation for Cantonese roasted pork.

By the way, we don't put food colouring in our authentic Cha Siu recipe!
