DIRECTIONS

  • Season the pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder (season the pork cubes with a small amount of salt or omit the salt and just season with pepper and garlic powder).
  • Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add in about 1/3 of the pork and saute until brown (about 6-7 minutes) transfer to a bowl and continue with the remaining pork.
  • Add in the fresh garlic, green onions and ginger; saute for 1 minute.
  • Return the pork to the pot along with any juices from the bowl or plate.
  • Add in 1-1/2 cups broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, crushed red pepper flakes and five-spice powder; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer until the pork is very tender (about 90 minutes or more or less).
  • Stir/whisk in remaining broth and cornstarch together in a small cup; mix into simmering sauce.
  • Simmer until the gravy thickens, stirring occasionally (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Season with salt and pepper.
