    An Asian take on bar-b-que pork.


    • 1 Lb.  Pork Shoulder-excess fat trimmed, cut into 3/4" pieces, patted dry
    • 2 Tbsp.  Vegetable Oil
    • 2 Tbsp.  Scallions-chopped
    • 1 Tbsp.  Fresh Ginger-minced or grated
    • 1 Tbsp.  Fresh Garlic-minced
    • 1/4 Cup Cider Vinegar
    • 2 tsp. Sambal Chile Paste
    • ½ Cup Ketchup
    • ½ Cup Hoisin Sauce-available in Asian section of market
    • 1/4 Cup Honey
    • 2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce-low sodium

    Heat saute pan on high heat, add vegetable oil and about half of the pork pieces. Brown all over, remove to a plate,  and repeat with the other half of the pork. In the same pan, add the scallions, ginger, and garlic, cook for 30 seconds until aromatic. Add the remaining ingredients and stir smooth. Return the pork pieces and any juices on plate to pan, bring to a simmer, cover and place in a 325°f oven for about 45 minutes, or until the pork is fork tender. Skim off any fat that has risen to the top of the sauce, and serve the stew over jasmine rice,and some stir fried vegetables. Enjoy!
