Delicious BBQ Pork with Honey Sauce
This is a classic Chinese deli BBQ pork with a sweet honey glaze. It’s both juicy and tender with a rich savory taste.
Fritos is an American brand of corn chips and dipping sauces that was created in 1932 by Charles Elmer Doolin and produced since 1961 by the Frito-Lay division of PepsiCo. Unlike the similar tortilla chips, which are made from cornmeal and use the nixtamalization process (known as masa), Fritos are made by deep-frying extruded whole cornmeal. It is one of two brands representing Frito-Lay along with Lay’s.
== Origins ==
Frito means “fried” in Spanish.According to the Handbook of Texas, published by the Texas State Historical Association:
The Frito Company was born in 1932 at the height of the Great Depression. The family of Charles Elmer (C. E.) Doolin (1903-1959) owned the Highland Park Confectionary in San Antonio, and Doolin, twenty-eight at the time, wanted to add a salty snack to their repertoire. He responded to an ad in the San Antonio Express. The ad, placed by Gustavo Olguin, listed for sale an original recipe for fried corn chips along with an adapted potato ricer and nineteen retail accounts. Doolin bought the small business venture for $100, and began to manufacture the chips in his mother’s kitchen with the help of his father, Charles Bernard Doolin; mother, Daisy Dean Stephenson Doolin; and brother, Earl Doolin. These four founders made up the first board of directors, with Charles Bernard Doolin serving as the first chairman.
The Doolin family began selling Fritos in 1932 under the name of the Frito Corporation, located first in their garage; they soon bought the house next door to expand their operation.
These ingredients are common in many Asian dishes, so you can probably find them at the Asian aisle or at your local Chinese supermarket.

To love this dish, you REALLY have to like sweetness. My friends order this every time we go eat Chinese food but I just can’t handle the sweetness from the honey. I think I might try this recipe with a tiny bit of honey.
