    DrGaellon's Note:

    From Gourmet's "Diary of a Foodie," episode 219, "Vietnam: The Taste of Simplicity." You don't actually need a clay pot to make this; any heavy bottomed saucepan will do. The fish sauce (nam pla) is crucial to get the right flavor; do not attempt to substitute.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Allow to remain over heat until fully melted, and approximately the color of a US copper penny.
    2. 2
      Carefully add broth. It will steam and bubble wildly, and the caramel WILL seize. This is expected, and as you continue to apply heat, the caramel will dissolve back into a nice syrup.
    3. 3
      Add fish sauce, shallot, garlic, and white parts of scallions. Bring to a simmer until vegetables soften.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle pork with ground black pepper. Toss to coat, and add to pot. Simmer very low for 75-90 minutes. Serve with rice and top with scallion greens.
