Put the pork in a bowl and mix together with all of the marinade ingredients. 2. Cover pork and let sit for at least an hour to overnight in the refrigerator. 3. Remove the pork from the fridge and bring to room temperature for 30 minutes while you prepare the ingredients to cook. 4. In a deep pan or casserole, heat oil over a medium to high heat and cook the ginger until fragrant. Add the lemongrass and chopped garlic, cook until fragrant, a couple of minutes careful not to burn the garlic! 5. Remove the pork from the marinade, reserving this for later, to caramelise the pork in the pan. 6. Once the pork is lightly caramelised, add the rest of the marinade, ½ litre of stock and 1 tbsp of palm sugar. 7. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until pork is fork tender. Every 5-10 minutes, stir to prevent burning and add more water if it gets too dry. 8.Once the pork is fork tender*, if there is still a lot of visible liquid, uncover the wok, turn up the heat, and stir continuously until the sauce has reduced to a glistening coating or you can add the cornstarch slurry if you prefer that method of thickening (I tend to use cornstarch when I’m in a hurry!) 9. Season the sauce with your liking, we sometimes add a dash more shaoxing wine and a little salt/white pepper if needed and then enjoy with a bowl of warm rice! *If there is a thick layer of oil on the sauce, you can blot oil with kitchen paper or oil blotting paper to remove some of the oil. If you’re preparing this for later, you can put it in the fridge to cool and remove the set oil. Reply youareovaryacting September 14, 2021 This looks scrumptious! We have a Vietnamese version of that too which we throw whole hard boiled eggs into. Super yum!
