Default Vietnamese Caramelized Salty Pepper Pork ( Thit Kho) Recipe

Not sure if anyone here has tried this but it taste pretty good with rice. Only takes 1 hr to cook. You can eat it a couple of times and it taste even better when sitting in your fridge for a few days.

Been at home since Monday with my kid and have nfi what to eat or cook...

You can actually order this dish at viet/chinese restaurant!

Ingredients

1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 lbs pork fillet
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 c water
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c fish sauce
1 onion, roughly sliced

Directions

Step #1 Wash & cut pork fillet into 3/4 inch (cubed)pieces. I prefer thinly sliced.
Step #2 In a dry saucepan, melt sugar on high heat until it becomes golden brown but not candied. Keep an eye on it coz it burns really quick.
Step #3 Immediately, pepper, onions, add pork belly pieces, & garlic.
Step #4 Stir to get a golden color on the meat.
Step #5 Add fish sauce & water, deglaze, & bring to a boil.
Step #6 Reduce to low heat, cover & let simmer for 20-30 mins (stirring every once in awhile) until sauce thickens a little.
Step #7 Add a little more fish sauce & black pepper to taste.
Step #8 Serve over white rice, cucummber & a beer
Step #9 Note: Some vietnamese add whole hard boiled eggs along with the liquids.
Enjoy the Vietnamese Caramelized Salty Pepper Pork ( Thit Kho) recipe.

Is that what you call it? Caramelized Salty Pepper Pork? I always thought it was Pork Stew or something.

Just remember not to burn the sugar!! Keep an eye out when trying to melt it. Burnt sugar will fuk the flavoring up.

With the fish sauce, you can just put in as much as you want to suite your taste buds

Go hard out on the pepper coz it gives it the extra kick...

Practice makes PERFECT!!

Forgot to mention garlic also needs to be finely chopped up into small bits.

My mum does it aswell but that's cheating. Lol

Trying not to burn the sugar is the hard part.
