½ tbsp Chinese Five Spice

A pinch of Salt to taste

Directions:
1) Combine all ingredients in a big bowl and start mixing them with a woodspoon and mixing well the marinade into mince.

2) Set aside, covered with the lids, to let sit in the fridge at least an hour or overnight.

3) A board with Reusable Non Stick Cooking Liner for easy cleanup, add the marinade pork minced and covered with cling film also roller is what you need and it's so easy that making thin, or you can adjust your technique .

4) Place marinade pork minced on sheet, don't overlap meat. Set oven at 200°C temperature, bake one hour each side, until are glazed, browned, and tender, flipping over half-way through  spoon off and discard the oil. and brushing honey roast them for further 20 minutes each side.

Pack into airtight bags or jars for storage in the fridge can keep 14 days or You can store it in the freezer this way for up to a few months. Re-heating again, and serve!

Helpful Tips:
Everyone's oven is different. PLEASE UNDERSTAND YOUR OVEN! If you are using toaster oven, heat the low temperature 150 -175°C and bake for 15 minutes each side, after brushing honey another 5 mins to go. (Turn off the fan) and always stand to one side of the oven before you open it. you know why as you probably had a face full of burning hot steam already. Clean the oven regularly, otherwise you will be cooking for the fire brigade.

If something catches fire in the oven - turn off the power /gas and don't open the door until fire goes out never throw water into the oven to put out the flames! Pork jerky and Beef jerky is the same way to go but just change the minced for beef and add more black pepper, oyster sauce instead of char siu sauce, chinese five spice, barbecue sauce for smoke flavor and a some chili if you like hot spicy flavour. When you take out the pork jerky in the fridge just re-heating in microwave for 30 seconds. Freezer re-heating for 1:30 to 2 minutes. Good Luck!
