One Pot Chinese Pork by Muma Dean

A lot of chinese type food takes rather a lot of effort and makes a lot of mess. So I came up with this one in a hurry and did it in one pot so it could go on the campfire but it could obviously go on the stove or in the oven too.


500g diced pork
A bunch of spring onions, sliced into chunks
½ bulb of garlic, chopped up
1cm cubed ginger, chopped up
1 piece of star anise (or if you have Chinese five spice in your cupboard then a sprinkle of that)
3 tbsp sugar
150 ml dark soy sauce
150 ml water
Broccoli (or another green veg of your choice)
Rice to serve it with

Put all the ingredients, except the broccoli, in a pot like this:

bring to the boil and simmer for about 1-1.5hrs, until the pork is really tender. While you cook some rice put the broccoli in for the last 5 mins before the rice is ready and then serve.
