Recipe Report: Black Sauce Pork

I forgot to report how the black sauce pork recipe turned out. I cooked it on Saturday night... hubby was tremendously happy with it. I think it was compounded by the hard-boiled eggs in it (hubby loves eggs). There was still enough for lunch on Monday which hubby thoroughly enjoyed at work. "You should cook more of this kind of stuff", he says.

To those of of you who may be wondering what this recipe comprises of... I'll go over it briefly: it begins with some garlic, five-spice powder, kayu manis (cinammon), black peppercorns, star anise, cloves, cardamon (which I didn't have) all fried together with some peanut oil; then add pork (I used ribs) and brown with spices; then add dark soy sauce and water; simmer for an 45 minutes to an hour... oh and don't forget to put in eggs to hardboil together.

So easy and so yummy!!! (Thanks mom!)
