Malaysian Caramelised Pork wth Rice & Asian Pickles
Truly authentic, thanks to our Singaporean chef
A great meal for when you feel the need for true Asian flavours
Aussie pork is cooked twice so that the fat is rendered right down. First it is braised in our own master stock. Then it is deep fried. Finally it's finished off with our authentic caramel sauce. It's served with jasmine rice and Asian pickles. (Traditionally served with meats to help digestion.) The very best bits of rice are those at the bottom of the pack where they have absorbed the sauce and gone beautifully caramelly and sticky!
While there is chilli in the recipe, it's not at all overpowering. It just adds to the flavour and gives a background warmth. Lots of our customers who are a little chilli-shy have told us that they really enjoy it. (Which might be why they're ordering them 3 or 4 at a time........)
Heat this to your own taste. Some like the pork to be very tender and soft and juicy - and so it's advised to slowly heat up till you find your sweet spot. Others like to cook it more, when it tends to go much chewier and drier, and more caramelly.
