- 250 grams pork (you may choose a fatty part but since I now vowed to eat healthily, I chose lean)
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 large bay leaves
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- ground pepper (others use peppercorns but I want mine ground for more flavour)
- 1 1/2 tbsps sugar
- 2 tbsps cooking oil (optional)
- 2 small potatoes, wedged
- Wash your pork and drain it. Put it inside a traditional Filipino frying pan or kawali (as pictured above). The fate of your dish is in the hands of your kitchen blings. Really.
- Put the rest of the ingredients and make sure they are all mixed well together. If you have time, marinate it for at least 30 minutes.
- Set it on medium fire and cover. Cook until pork is tender.
- If pork's fork-ready, remove the sauce from the pan and set it aside on a bowl.
- Stir fry the meat. You may use cooking oil to get that perfect sizzling sound or you may add the sauce one tablespoon at a time so the pork will render its own oil (especially if you chose the fatty part).
- Don't let it burn! Put back the remaining sauce and simmer it for a minute or two so the sauce will thicken a bit.
- You can add fried potato wedges as an extender and garnish.
