Asian Spiced Pork

admin's picture
  Fresh ham/Boneless pork 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Sweet bean sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Dark soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Chinese rice wine 1 Tablespoon
  Whole star anise 1
  Rock sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Wash the pork; wipe dry.
Then rub all sides with sweet bean paste and marinate at least 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator.
Place the soy sauce, wine, and star anise in a deep pot and bring to a boil, then add the pork and 1 cup boiling water.
Simmer over low heat for 1/2 hour.
Then add the rock sugar and continue to simmer 1 hour more, turning the meat frequently.
When the sauce has been reduced to 1/2 cup and is rather thick, remove pot from the heat and let meat cool in the pot.
Slice the pork and arrange it attractively on a plate.
Pour the thick dark sauce on top.
