Enjoy this Asian-inspired meal of pork coated in a sticky, caramelised glaze, with healthy steamed Asian greens and rice on the side.
• You can use pork spare ribs for this dish instead, or even chicken fillets.
• Kecap manis is a sweet soy sauce available in the Asian section of the supermarket. If you can't find it, use soy sauce sweetened with a little light brown sugar.
• Fried shallots are available in the Asian section of many supermarkets and Asian food stores. If you can't find them, either omit them or try making your own. Thinly slice small French shallots, then deep-fry in hot oil for a few minutes until golden and crisp. Drain well, allow to cool, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
This was quite easy to make. I added some some Chinese 5 spice and spring onions. My man told me to save this recipe as one of his favorites. - 05 Jan 2013
Not recommended. Creates a pile of sweet flavoured pork pieces and that's about it. Visually unappealing, virtually no sauce, tends to dry out the pork, and very lacking in vegetable ingredients. Boring. - 24 May 2012
dead easy, can't keep my boy away from it. - 19 Mar 2011
