This Honey Soy slow braised Pork dish is a stunner.
Honey Soy is a fairly classic blend used in Chinese cuisine. The sweetness of the honey offsets the saltiness of the Soy Sauce that results in a well balanced, tasty dish. This dish will quickly become a family favourite, and any left overs (if there is any) will quickly be snapped up by someone the next day for lunch.
The pork can be substituted with Chicken, Fish, Seafood or Tofu – the sauce is the hero in this recipe.
This recipe uses Cocavo Sizzle & Drizzle or Hot Wok Oil to brown the meat giving it a lovely caramelised appearance that adds to the flavour of the finished dish. For super tender pork, marinate for 24 hours in soy sauce, Cocavo Sesame Oil and a splash of Chinese Cooking Wine.
