Braised marinated pork

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Pork
1 \N Scallion stalk
1 slice Fresh ginger root
1 \N Clove garlic
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Sherry
2½ tablespoon Oil
1 tablespoon Sugar
5 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 dash Pepper

1. Cut pork in 4 equal parts. Cut scallion in 2-inch sections.

2. Mince ginger root and garlic; then combine with soy sauce and sherry.

3. Add mixture to pork and toss gently. Let stand 30 minutes, turning meat occasionally; then drain, discarding marinade.

4. Heat oil in a heavy pan. Add pork and brown quickly on all sides.

5. Add sugar, remaining soy sauce, pepper and scallion. Simmer, covered, until pork is done (about 45 minutes). Cut in 1-inch cubes and serve.

NOTE: This dish can be made without water only if a very heavy pot is used. If pork shows signs of burning, however, add ¼ cup boiling water.
