Simple Braised Pork in Soy Sauce with Hardboiled Eggs

~ Posted on Friday, April 18, 2014 at 7:55 AM ~

For this post, I am sharing my next food recipe, one that I learned from this awesome cooking book I bought (will share one of this days)! My MIL used to make this dish often as hubby's side of family is Hokkien and they love to eat pork dishes. As a Cantonese, I'm not really a fan of pork dishes but I told myself to give this recipe a try and see how it turns out. After all, I promised myself I will learn to cook for the family, so that said, I have to cook whatever dishes that my family likes, not just what I like. Right?

Without further ado, here is the recipe for Simple Braised Pork in Soy Sauce with Hardboiled Eggs:

* Garlic - 1-2 cloves chopped finely
* Ginger - sliced thinly
* Eggs - quantity up to you
* Pork - cut into bite sized
* Oil - about 2 ~ 3 tbsp

* Water - 2.5 cups
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 tbsp sugar
* Sweet soy sauce - 1/2 cup

* Boil eggs separately and once done, let it cool.
* Heat oil in frying pan, fry the ginger slices for a minute or two.
* Fry the garlic next until you smell nice garlic-ky smell from the frying pan. Be careful not to overfry them as it will give bitter taste then.
* Fry the pork until brown.
* Pour in the sauce.
* Let the sauce simmer for 1 hour.
* Add eggs about half hour before end.


My hubby likes the dish and being a Hokkien who loves to eat pork dishes, I feel happy to hear that feedback. This recipe is for keeps!
