Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 green onions
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb trimmed and cubed pork shoulder
  • 1 lb trimmed and cubed pork shoulder stewing cube
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon gingerroot minced
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

Method

Chop green onions, reserving white and green parts separately; set aside.

In plastic bag, combine flour, thyme, allspice and cayenne. Add pork and shake to coat, reserving remaining flour mixture.

In Dutch oven, heat 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil over medium heat; fry pork, in 2 batches, until browned, 5 minutes. Remove to plate. Add remaining oil to pan; fry white parts of onions, garlic and ginger until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add reserved flour mixture; stir for 1 minute. Add stock and 1 cup (250 mL) water; bring to boil, scraping up brown bits.

Return pork and any accumulated juices to pan; stir in soy sauce and brown sugar. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pork is tender, about 45 minutes. Add green parts of green onions; simmer for 5 minutes.

Make-Ahead Meal: Let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold. Refrigerate in 4 airtight containers for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator and reheat to serve.
