Trim the ends off the 8 fat spring onions and add these to the pan whole along with the chilli, stock, miso paste (if using) and soy sauce. Bring everything to a simmer, then cover and put the casserole in the oven for 2 hrs.

Love this recipe. Have served it at dinner parties and it was a hit. I use dried ginger instead of fresh and it still tastes great.

I added a splash of rice vinegar (~1tbsp) as well as the rice wine for a bit of a tang, and more chillies and this was delicious.

This is delicious, lovely tender pork with a subtle kick of ginger (though I only used 50g ginger), nice with plain rice or noodles. A regular midweek meal in our house.

This was really tasty, made it with chinese style red cabbage. Used pork shoulder so was quite cheap too!
