  • Pork shoulder 1kg cubed
  • Garlic 3 large cloves, crushed
  • Onions 4 large finely chopped
  • Lemon Half, juiced
  • Turmeric half a teaspoon
  • Salt a teaspoon or to your tasting
  • Cooking oil 2 dessert spoons
  • Paprika 1 dessert spoons
  • Extra hot chilli powder half a teaspoon
  • Ginger thumb-size, peeled and crushed until no lumps
  • Stock cube 1 soaked in 20ml warm water
  • Dark soy 2 dessert spoons (for taste)
  • Very dark soy 2 dessert spoons (Ketjap-Manis :- for colour)
  • Shallots 4 good sized shallots or 8 small ones
  • Cuisine: Cooking time: 35 mins Serving: 6 people

    This is a classic Burmese dish. Use the skin and some fat in this, this will add to the flavour. Some Burmese will cook this without chillies. For those of you with children, remove the extra hot chilli from this recipe, it will be just as tasty.

    Marinate pork in lemon, turmeric, salt, garlic, ginger, onions, oil, chilli and paprika and stock.

    Preheat the oven to gas mark 3/160° Celsius
    There is NO frying involved. This is more like a spicy stew.

    Cook on the hob for a good 15 mins until the meat is sealed properly. It is not necessary to add water, the meat should give out the liquid. Add both soy sauces before cooking in the oven for 1 hour.

    check it halfway to make sure it’s not too dry, add water if necessary.

    Add shallots and back in the oven for 20 mins. The meat should be really soft and break easily.

    Author’s Note:-

    I used Ocado pork roasting joint in this recipe.

    Best served with Rice and any spicy salad.
