This is one of the ways we make our version of char siu bao filling.
1 1/2 cups chopped meat from Char Siu, prepared specifically for this dish, or leftovers
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Combine everything in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened and cornstarch is fully cooked. Adjust seasonings and serve on top of rice, or allow to cool and use for stuffing char siu bao (Filipino siopao).
