Pork shoulder (called butt in some regions) cut into the shape of a log is marinated in five-spice powder, Shao Xing rice wine, sugar, soy sauce, sesame seed oil and hoisin sauce, and roasted.
If you ever need to make a huge batch of delicious side dish without breaking a sweat, this roasted baby potatoes fit the bill perfectly. Just season, toss with melted butter and spices, stick in the oven and relax.
