  • Slice the garlic cloves whichever way you choose (I prefer lengthwise) and saute them in a wok or a big enough frying pan, in bit of oil.
  • Put in the cubed pork, give it a good stir and add a cup of water once the meat has turned white.
  • Cover the pan and cook for 15 mins or so over medium heat. Bung the chicken pieces in, stir a bit and add the soy sauce and vinegar (if you think the meat needs some more liquid to cook in, just add some more water, soy, or vinegar and adjust according to your taste).
  • Cover and cook until the meat is tender and browned with soy (just make sure that theres always liquid left in the pan to avoid burning the meat).
  • Before turning off the heat, add the bay leaves, pepper, and sugar and cook for 5 minutes more.
  • This dish can be served dry or with a bit of the sauce. Serve with rice or steamed veggies.
