Using a fork, pierce the slices of pork well.
Make the Sauce: Mix all ingredients for the sauce (except the pork shoulder) together in a small microwave-safe bowl.
Place the pork slices in a ziplock bag or bowl, and pour in half the sauce. Mix well and let the pork marinate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
Remove pork from the marinade and place in a single layer in your air fryer basket.
Set the air fryer to 390F for 15 minutes, flipping and basting the pork half way through.
While the Char siu is cooking, place the reserved half of the sauce in the microwave and cook on high for 45-60 seconds stirring every 15 seconds. You are doing this to thicken the sauce a little. Since it has honey in it, be careful to not overcook otherwise you will have char siu toffee (ask me how I know).
Using a meat thermometer, ensure your pork has reached an internal temperature of 145F.
Remove the pork to a cutting board and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Brush with the thickened, cooked sauce and serve.
