Marinate Pork: Use a fork to poke lots of holes all over the pork as deep as your fork allows. Marinate the pork for 30 minutes to 2 hours in a ziploc bag with air squeezed out. Remove the pork and marinade from the bag. Pour 1 cup (250ml) of water into the Ziploc bag and mix it with the remaining marinade sticking onto the bag. Pressure Cook Pork: Pour the marinade mixture in Instant Pot pressure cooker, then place the marinated pork butt meat in a steamer basket in Instant Pot. Season the marinated pork with a pinch of kosher salt on both sides. Close the lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing Position. Pressure cook at High Pressure for 18 minutes + 12 minutes Natural Release. Open the lid carefully. Apply Honey Sauce: Mix 2 tbsp (30 ml) regular soy sauce with honey in a small bowl. *Pro Tip: This sauce is to give some killer sweetness and color to the outer layer of the pork butt meat. Brush this honey sauce generously onto the pork butt meat.
Broil Pork in Oven: Preheat oven to 450°F. Place pork in oven and broil for roughly 4 - 6 minutes per side until the honey sauce on both sides are browned with some black bits.
Serve: Serve the tasty char siu with rice or noodles and the leftover honey sauce on the side. Enjoy~ :)
