Directions See How It's Made
- Combine sugar, 60ml (1/4 cup) of the tamari, star anise, ginger, vinegar and oil in a glass bowl. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and place in fridge for 3 hours to develop the flavours.
- Preheat oven to 220°C Remove pork from marinade and place in a roasting pan. Reserve marinade. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until pork is brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
- Meanwhile, combine reserved marinade and water in the roasting pan and bring to the boil over high heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Add the remaining tamari and stir until well combined. Remove from heat.
- Heat a wok over medium heat. Add the sesame seeds and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until toasted. Transfer to a plate. Add the gai choy, choy sum, cabbage and green shallot to the wok and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until just wilted.
- Divide the Asian greens among serving plates and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Top with pork and serve drizzled with sauce.
