Sometimes, some dishes are hard to put into writing and I think this is one of them. I almost feel like I have to stand beside you and show you how it's done. I can tell by how it smells, how it sounds as it's cooking if it is just right or not. For you, you'll have to try it a few times to know what's right for you. I always make this the day before and put it away because there is more depth of flavour if it is eaten on the second day. You can also substitue pork for duck and make it the same way. I don't like this recipe for chicken though. That is made a different way. Hope you try it and enjoy this dish over a bed of steamed rice.
