  • Add the pork pieces, reserving marinade.
  • Stir fry the pork until browned, then add reserved marinade, washing out the bowl with half cup hot water and adding that too.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes until pork is tender.
  • Stir occasionally and add more hot water if liquid looks like drying up.
  • Be careful that the sweet marinade does not burn.

  • Serve with plain white rice.
