About

A friend from brought this for a party and it was wonderful. Unlike the traditional western barbeque recipe, this one is quite different in both taste and texture. It is seasoned with Chinese five Spices--which is a combination of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Szechwan pepper and fennel. You can roast this either in the oven or grill on the stove. I prefer the roasting method as the meat is cook slowly to retain most of its natural juices.
