Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Combine pork, garlic, soy sauce, star anise, peppercorns, bay leaves, and vinegar in a large bowl. Stir until the pork is evenly coated, cover, and let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 day. If marinating for 1 day, rotate the meat midday, so no piece feels left out. #NoFOMO
  2. Heat the oil in a large wok or pot and saute the shallots (or onions) until translucent. Then, add your sugar and stir until dissolved.
  3. Strain the pork from the marinade (SAVE THE MARINADE) and dust it with the flour before adding it to the wok. Add the pork to your pot and let it brown.
  4. Once brown add your precious marinade juices and water to the pot. Let everything come to a boil and simmer on medium heat until meat is tender (approx. 45 minutes). If the sauce starts looking scarce, add 1 cup water at a time to keep it from drying up.
  5. Serve hot with jasmine rice.
Recipe Notes

TIP You can use chicken (thighs, wings, drumsticks, bone-in of course) instead of pork. Follow the recipe as is and add in a piece of fresh ginger with the onions while sautéing.
