How to make it

  • Prick the pork meat with a fork in several places.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a large pan. Lightly brown the pork, rolling it on hot oil to brown all side evenly.
  • Pour enough water to reach 3/4 the height of the pork.
  • Pour in the soy sauce and the rest of the ingredients.What you`re looking for is the balance between the saltiness of the soy sauce and the sweetness of the sugar. So, use more or less of either ingredient to suit your taste.
  • Simmer the pork,fat side up,for an hour,depending on its thickness.
  • Lift the pork out of the liquid then place on a plate and cool to room temperature. Cut into 1/4 inch slices and arrange on a serving plate.You can dip every slices on the liquid mixture before setting them on the plate.
  • Strain the braising liquid mixture.Removing the garlic,onion,peppercorns,star anise and laurel leaves. You only need the liquid mixture as the sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the sliced pork.
  • Serve hot. Goes best with hot rice.You can sprinkle a little sauce to your rice :p
