Rice Cooker BBQ Pork

I used to make BBQ Pork using Oven with the ready BBQ sauce which I consider easy and simple enough to prepare.

However, not until I found another better cooking method, which is using Rice Cooker. Yes, you hear me right, using the rice cooker that you use for cooking rice. This method is even hassle free than the oven way. This cooking method is so easy to follow even if you are beginner in cooking, I bet you will still end up with juicy and tender BBQ Pork taste just like those selling at the restaurant.

Rice Cooker BBQ Pork

Due to Covid 19 pandemic, many around the world are either lockdown at home or advised to stay home to stay safe. For us in Auckland, our level 4 lockdown only allow essential businesses continue to operate but restricted all food outlets even takeaway to open. 

Hence, for us to eat, home cooking is the only avenue for us. So in order to satisfy our crave, I made this super easy Rice Cooker BBQ Pork. I had shared the oven method of BBQ Pork before, click Oven Baked BBQ Pork to read more. 

  • Pork Scotch Fillets or Pork Belly or Chicken 
  • Lee Kum Kee Char Siu Sauce - 500g meat about 4 to 5 table spoon sauce or to your taste
  • Honey (for glazing)

  1. Wash meat and pat dry with paper towel and cut pork fillets into strips
  2. Marinate evenly with Lee Kum Kee Char Siu SauceInitially, the sauce is quite sticky and gluey to spread over fillets. Once being left in the fridge for a while it will get diluted.
  3. Marinate for at least 2 hours, best leave overnight to allow the flavors to seep in (I stored them in covered container and left overnight in fridge).
  4. An hour before your meal time, take out the marinated meat.
  5. Place marinated meat into your rice cooker inner pot, keep the sauce to be used later.
  6. Press the Start cooking button to start cooking cycle.
  7. After 10 to 15 minutes, open the rice cooker cover and basting the left over sauce over the meat and also glaze with honey, close the lid and let it continue to cook.
  8. For better juicy effect, repeat the flipping and basting at least 2 times.
  9. Depend on the rice cooker, the cooking maybe ready about 30 minutes. Check on doneness. If you prefer to be a bit char then you can leave it longer in the rice cooker by just press start on the 2nd cycle.
  10. Once meat ready, remove from rice cooker and let cool for a few minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into thin pieces.
  11. If still have the left over  marinate sauce, thicken over stove and use as dipping sauce.
  12. When you take out the pork, there will be some left over oil in the rice cooker, if you wish you can either continue to cook your white rice to use the oil to make oil rice to serve with your BBQ pork.
  13. You can either serve this with rice or wanton noodle or even use as filling for char siu bau (pork bun)

  • 猪柳片(梅头肉),五花肉或鸡肉
  • 李锦记叉烧酱 -500克肉,约4至5汤匙酱或您的口味
  • 蜂蜜(上色)


One of the positive effects from this Pandemic is, nearly everyone can cook now! Enjoy your kitchen got talent show!
