Braised Pork in Soy Garlic Sauce
March 23, 2015
This dish is delicious with rice. Here in Vietnam we like to eat it with the fat and skin but if you prefer your meat with out those bits, choose your cut of meat accordingly. This dish is loved by both my son and grandson!
- 1 lb pork loin
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 Tbsp oil
- 1/2 tsp Sate chili sauce
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Peel the garlic, then with the side of a knife, smash the garlic. Set aside.
- Heat 3 Tbsp oil in a pan on medium-high heat.
- Place the pork into the oil and brown each side.
- Then add the garlic in to the pan. Fry until it's golden brown.
- Add a 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/2 tsp Sate, 2 Tbsp sugar. Stir until well combined.
- Cover with a lid and turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add 1/2 tsp of pepper and flip the pork.
- Cover and simmer for 10 more minutes.
- Remove the pork and slice into thin strips. Place on a plate and drizzle sauce on top.
- Serve with rice and enjoy.

This sounds wonderful and quick to prepare! Thanks for sharing. But, I do have a question... is the chili sauce mentioned in your recipe equivalent to the American style chili sauce that comes in bottles and is sometimes used as a spicy substitute for ketchup? Heinz is a common brand. It is very mild. Could I use this in place of the chili sauce listed in your recipe? Thanks!

For this recipe, you want to use something like Sriracha or Chili Garlic Paste. You can find these in the Asian section of any major grocery store.
