Bakkwa (Chinese Pork Jerky)
Malaysians call it: bakkwa, rou gan or long yoke
Charred sticky-sweet-umami meat candy mmm!
Free of the coloring, additives and preservatives usually present in mass-produced versions, this delicious Chinese New Year staple is home-marinated in a secret recipe, pressed into sheets by hand, then grilled until the perfect flavor and texture is achieved.
Comes in vacuum-sealed packs. 5-6 sheets of jerky per 8 oz pack, 10-12 sheets per pound.
Refrigerate if not eating immediately.
Best consumed warm. Please reheat gently for 10 seconds in the microwave, or toast briefly in an oven.
Contains wheat, soy and anchovy extract.

The texture was close enough to the ones bought in Singapore Chinatown. It was a little dry and the taste needs to be slightly sweeter. Overall, it was close to but not enough to the ones I loved.
One Word - ok two words: so good!! Lunar New Year must have!!
Ordered 3 items. The Crispy Rossettes came full of crumbs. The bakwa doesn’t look or taste good. Of all the 3 items, the pineapple tart is consider acceptable. I will never buy again. Sorry this may not be the review you are looking for. But, the truth hurts.
Loved the flavors and it’s totally meat candy! Would love a little more chewiness to the texture to make it perfect.
This jerky is to DIE FOR! Forget about what you've tried before, especially the store-bought crap, because this is nothing like it. You can actually taste the pork, and whatever the marinade- it's heavenly! It's charred, it has a sweetness to it, and it is simply mouthwatering!
