Carmelised Pork

Vietnamese food is healthy and delicious. The kids rate this in their top 5 and it cured them of the phobia against fish sauce.


  • 500 g Pork Belly cut in ½ cm thick slices.  Or Pork Loin cut in very thin slices.
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 375 ml water
  • Green Onions, cut white part in thin strips, chop the green part
  • Coriander, to garnish


  • 3 shallots, fine chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, fine chopped
  • 3 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper

Marinate the pork for about 30 mins. Then over high heat stir fry in oil for about 5 mins until it starts to turn brown. Then add the sugar and brown further. Reduce heat a little, add the water and reduce by half for about 10 minutes. Then toss in the green onion, cook for a minute. Then add the coriander.

Serve with Jasmine rice and segments of lime.
