Mix all the ingredients for pork marinate together.
Scorn the skin of the pork. Pour the marinade over pork and massage it into the meat. Make sure it covers every surface of the pork. Place the garlic and star anise in between the slits on the pork skin. Cling film and let it rest overnight in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 220 degree celsius. Place the pork on a roasting pan and pour any remaining sauce all over pork. Roast in the oven for 30mins. After that, decrease oven temperature to 190 degree celsius and roast for 1hr 50mins. To check if the pork is ready, use a sharp knife and pierce into the middle of the pork. Juice should be clear in colour. Alternatively you can use a thermometer and the middle of the pork should be at a temperature of 70-80 degree celsius, depending on how pink you like your meat to be. Let the pork rest for 20-30mins and slice into thin pieces.
Braised Mushrooms & Condiments
Prepare the braised mushrooms. put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer until mushrooms are tender and the sauce is slightly reduced.
Blitz sesame seeds and cashew nuts together until a semi fine texture. I like chunks of cashew thus I only blitz until it’s coarse. Alternatively you can chop up the nuts and mix in sesame seeds after.
Steam Pau for 5mins. Once Pau is ready, assemble your sliders with slices of meat, mushrooms, nuts and coriander.
