    Nolita_Food's Note:

    One of our everyday dish. If you don't have a clay pot, use a normal saucepan, big enough to hold about 1 1/2 lbs. pork and some sauce. I prefer pork tender loin with a bit of fat, but many people like pork shoulder or pork chops. If you use pork chops, change to about 1 3/4 - 2 lbs.

    1. 1
      Put oil in pot or pan over medium heat, add sugar and cook, stirring frequently till it dissolves.
    2. 2
      Add ginger, garlic, shallots, chili, cook for about 4-5 minutes Turn up the heat to high, add pork, stir till the meat has browned a little, then add water.
    3. 3
      When it comes to a boil, lower heat to simmer.
    4. 4
      Cut hard boil eggs in half and put into pot.
    5. 5
      This step is optional, but the eggs will absorb all the sauce and taste heavenly!
    6. 6
      Cover the pot and let it simmer.
    7. 7
      I find the longer you leave it, the better it taste.
    8. 8
      But after 30-35 minutes it's done.
    9. 9
      Serve with cooked white rice or basmati, and that's a meal there.
    10. 10
      Normally we just steam cabbage or water spinach for vegetables.

      This was awesome, just like mom's! So easy to make too. I put the whole egg in just like in the picture instead of cutting in half, less messy too. I did find it too sweet as some others did and would reduce the amount of sugar next time. Also, you don't mention when to add the fish sauce but adding some after I added the water turned out ok. In addition I would add a bit of maggi seasoning, or soy sauce. I've made this 3x's now and love it. I've added all kinds of things, pork, chicken, even imitation crab :) but the eggs are best. Even without adding anything this serves as a great sauce for rice.

      The next time I make this dish, I will at least double the sauce because this dish tastes even better upon reheating, and made as is, there is hardly enough sauce. Wonderfully tasty dish. Thank you for sharing. Definitely one to repeat.

      I love clay pot pork and I'm so happy I found a good recipe here. I've made this 3-4 times already and the only change I would recommend is to reduce the sugar amount to about 2 TBS. Other than that, everything else is just right. I say let it simmer just a little longer as suggested because it becomes tastier the longer you let it simmer. It's become a regular in our household. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
