ingredients

directions

  • Place 1 tbs of the dark soy sauce, honey and five spice in a medium bowl. Add the pork and toss to coat. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to marinate.
  • Heat the oil in a Chinese clay pot or heavy-based medium saucepan over high heat until hot. Add the onion and cook, for 1-2 minutes or until it begins to turn golden brown. Add the garlic and star anise, and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until aromatic.
  • Add the pork mixture to the pan and cook, tossing, for 3-4 minutes or until the pork starts to change colour.
  • Add the water, sugar, salt and remaining soy sauce to the pot or pan and toss to combine. Bring the sauce to the boil. Add the hard-boiled eggs if using (the eggs will take on a dark colour and taste of the delicious sauce). Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or until the pork is tender and the sauce thickens slightly (if the sauce becomes too dry, add a little extra water).
  • Serve immediately with the steamed rice and top with the chilli.

    All I can say is OMG this is sooo wonderful! I was dubious at 1st because I don't like pork as it always goes dry, but not with this. Made for the AU/NZ Swap 41 June 2010
