White-Boiled Pork with Mashed Garlic
9 oz (250g) boneless pork or uncured ham
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
2 cups (500 ml) pork stock
3 tbsp plus 1 tsp. soy sauce
2 oz (50g) garlic, peeled and pounded to a paste
1/4 tsp. chili (chilli) oil
1. Wash the ham and boil in water to cover until done.
2. Drain and cut into three strips. Soak them in the stock for 5 minutes to absorb the flavour, then cut the strips into thin slices.
3. Mix the garlic with the sesame oil, adding enough water to make a paste. Blend the paste, with the soy sauce and chili oil. Pour it over the pork, blend well, and serve.
