Method

  • Slice the garlic cloves whichever way you choose (I prefer lengthwise) and saute them in a wok or a big enough frying pan, in approx 3 tbsp of oil.
  • Put in the cubed pork, give it a good stir. Add the soy sauce plus 1 cup of water, cover the pan and cook for 20 mins or so over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces in stir a bit, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar and sugar, cover, and cook until the meat is cooked through. (Just make sure that theres always liquid left in the pan to avoid burning the meat).
  • You can also add some seasoning or more soy sauce at this point; it all depends on your preference. Before turning off the heat, add the bay leaves and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes more or until the sauce is reduced. This dish is best paired with steamed/boiled rice.
