Hey guys and gals.
I've been dabbling at this using a crock pot since I have a day job. But has anyone found a way to reproduce this in an authentic manner?
Here is the recipe I've been using from a Thai friends mom, but it has never tasted anywhere near how she makes it.
2 lbs of Pork shoulder with thick fat.
6 Garlic cloves sliced
3 star annise
1 tsp Thai Pepper
4 tsp light soy sauce
2 tsp dark soysauce
4 tsp honey
4 tsp chinese 5 spice blend(From asian stores)
oil and butter
3 cups of water
In a pan,
When oil gets hot, sear 2 star annise, garlic, and butter.
Cut up the pork in to small cubes.
Put all of it that in to the crock pot, and let it cook for a whole day. Serve with rice.
