Thai Recipe

With the use of five spice powder, this recipe from my Thai cookbook is a result of the Chinese that migrated to Thailand. This recipe is a delicious fusion of Thai & Chinese cuisine.

If you are not a pork eater, feel free to substitute chicken or even potatoes, for a Vegetarian version.

Thai Five Spice Pork

Serves 4
Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 lbs. pork shoulder, chopped into large pieces
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons five spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons black soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 bunch cilantro

Separate cilantro leaves from the stems. Finely chop the stems. Chop the leaves separately.
Heat oil. Add garlic and cilantro stems. Saute for a few minutes until the garlic starts to change color.
Add pork and five spice powder. Fry for about 5 minutes, until the pork is well browned and coated with the spices.
Add tomato, sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, salt and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes.
Add cilantro leaves and stir to combine.

Serve with Jasmine rice.

Or for a non traditional gluten free meal, you can serve it with this Corn Salsa like I had it.
