Pork Stew With Chinese Flavors



  1. Put the pork, stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, carrots, ginger, chiles, garlic, and some salt and pepper in a pot.
  2. Bring to a boil, then adjust the heat so the mixture bubbles steadily but not furiously.
  3. Cover and cook, stirring every 30 minutes, until the meat is very tender and falling apart - 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  4. Transfer the meat and vegetables to a bowl and turn the heat under the pot juices to high.
  5. Continue cooking until the liquid has thickened slightly and reduced to a cup or even less.
  6. Lower the heat so the mixture bubbles, then return the meat and vegetables to the sauce to reheat.
  7. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more soy sauce, and serve garnished with the cilantro and scallions.
