Directions

1

Rub the pork rashers with salt and pepper.

2

In a flat container big enough to arrange all the pork rashers in, mix the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and hot water until well combined and smooth.

3

Add the pork rashers and massage the sauce into the rashers, coating it on both sides.

4

Cover and leave the container with the rashers in the fridge for 4 hours or longer.

5

Remove the rashers from the sauce and scrape the sauce off, but keep the sauce.

6

Braai the rashers over medium-hot coals, turning them frequently, until just cooked.

7

Meanwhile, heat the remaining sauce in a small saucepan and add the honey and lemon juice.

8

Baste the rashers with this warm sauce during the last 10 minutes on the coals.

9

Remove the rashers from the coals, rest them for 5 minutes and sprinkle with chopped chives before serving.
