Chinese Stewed Pork Recipe

Stewed Pork 


2 tbsps oil

2 lb pork shoulder, butt or lean sides, cut into 2 inch cubes

3 slices ginger root

4 scallions, cut into 2 inch pieces

3 whole star anise

5 tbsps dry sherry

¾ cup soy sauce

2 tbsps granulated or brown sugar

Scallion rings to garnish


Heat the oil in a pan and add the pork, ginger and scallions. Stir-fry until the pork is lightly browned.

Transfer the meat to a saucepan, using a slotted spoon. Reserve the ginger and scallions. Add the anise, sherry, soy sauce, sugar and sufficient water to cover the meat. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the pork is tender, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking.

Arrange the scallions around the edge of a warmed serving plate. Place the ginger in the center and pile the pork on top. Serve hot garnished with a few scallion rings.
