This is my mother's recipe- a pork dish braised with soya sauce, ginger and garlic. It used to be my favourite dish when I was a child. I have modified it slightly by adding a touch of shao xing wine and a star anise, which adds a bit more depth to the flavour.
200 g pork cubed
6 tbs dark soya sauce
1 clove garlic minced
1 thumb sized piece of ginger sliced
1 teaspoon shao xing wine
1 tsp sesame oil
1 star anise
pinch of salt and pepper
1. Heat oil in pot and fry garlic and ginger until browned. Add pork and fry up until cooked.
2. Add 1 cup water and all the seasonings and sauces. Let it simmer until the sauce has thickened up. (30 minutes)
3. Serve hot with white rice
