I found this recipe on a site called Berry & Maple, and their photo of the dish made it irresistible to cook. Outstanding photo and presentation!
Well, my version sure didn’t look like that. In fact, what I made, as you can see here, looks really boring, and even dry. It tasted great and wasn’t dry, but the presentation left a lot to be desired. I must have done something wrong.
Oh well, give it a try, it makes for a great meal served over rice or with stir-fried noodles.
What you’ll need:
- 2 lb pork butt or boneless ribs
- 0.5 onion
- 3T brown sugar
- 2 cups water
- 2T fish sauce
- 1T soy sauce
- 1t olive oil
- Chopped green onions as a garnish (which I didn’t have on hand)
What to do:
Coarsely chop the onion, and cut pork in small pieces. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok and cook onions and pork for about 5 minutes, until the meat is well browned.
Add the water, soy sauce, sugar and fish sauce, and bring to a light boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Over this time, the water should cook down into a thick sauce. I gotta tell you, that didn’t happen with mine. WTF.
Serve over rice, sprinkled with green onions for a garnish.
