Recipe: Thit Heo Kho (Braised Pork w/ Eggs)



Wandering Chopsticks, Thank-you for the recipe.

Recipe: Thit Heo Kho (Braised Pork w/ Eggs)

Ingredients:
1-2 pounds of pork shoulder
Fish Sauce
Pepper and salt to taste
4 eggs
1 tbsp sugar
1 medium onion
1/4 cup water
1 8 oz can of coconut juice (coco rico as Wandering suggest, I picked up canned drink coconut juice :D)

Directions:
Boil 4 eggs, Cut up meat. Marinate meat in salt, pepper and fish sauce for 10 minutes. Place sugar and coconut juice together. Dissolve it on heat. Place water, coconut juice, onion and meat into dutch oven or a pot. Heat on low for 1 hour. Place eggs in about 15 minutes before finishing. Serve over white rice.

I was impatient so I didn't wait for the coconut juice to caramelize. :D It still turned out delicious though. :) Note, I didn't use that whole pack of meat. I used about 1 1/2 pounds. The rest I placed in the freezer. :D

Haha. Now that you've got a fancy pot, I'll be expecting fancy dishes too. :)

But if you're not gonna carmelize the sugar, then you don't need to add any to the pot. The carmelization is for the sort-of burnt taste and color. Adds that extra oomph.

No wonder you went "missing" for a while. Braising and braising in that little red riding pot! The pork must be tender and juicy.

Oh yes, I know this one! I've made it before, except that my recipe had a much longer list of ingredients.. simple is better! :)

tiger - you noticed! :D hehe yeah i've been busy at work. so a bit preoccupied.

shilpa - simple is the key. you cook so many items. must try some of your dishes. :)

Hi Buddingcook! Well, I did have a Vietnamese food phase some time back, that's why I learned how to make this! :) It's not that I don't like Vietnamese food anymore, it's just that it is quite easliy available here so I don't bother to make it often.

I'm going to try this one, but is the coconut juice essential?

BuddingCook said...

shilpa - that's cool. i go through phases too. :D

mushroom- i don't think mama uses coconut juice. you could try it. remember that one time i bought some coconut juice in a can? it actually had jelly bits hehe i sieved it. :)
