Ingredients

For the pickled chillies

To serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the pork in a bowl and add 1 tbsp each of the soy sauce and rice wine. Toss to combine, then cover and chill for 1 hr, or overnight if time permits.

  • STEP 2

    To make the pickled chillies, put the chilli, shallot and rice vinegar in a small bowl with a big pinch of salt, and let stand for 1 hr or more.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy- based saucepan over a medium heat, add the garlic and ginger, and sauté for 2-3 mins or until golden. Add the pork and all the remaining ingredients, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 mins. Remove the lid from the pan to allow the liquid to reduce, and cook for a further 45 mins or until the meat falls apart.

  • STEP 4

    Serve scattered with the sesame seeds and spring onions, with steamed rice and the pickled chillies on the side.
