My mom taught me to cook this just by telling me how its done. She never taught me first hand or show me how its done. For years, I couldn't get it cooked properly. Or the taste just wasn't right.

After years of trying, I finally got it done perfectly. The secret to this I believe is practice and also understanding how ingredients worked with each other.

Here's my mom's aged-old recipe. '


Ma said the most important ingredient besides the pork is the sauce. Must only buy these brands. Notice the one in the centre is a new type of sauce. I found that adding this to it heightens the flavour to a whole new level!



Ingredients
2 pcs of Pork Trotters(Pig front hock/feet)
500g of Pork shoulder butt(with skin on)

5 pcs old ginger(smash with a large cleaver to break/flatten it)
300ml Sesame Oil (Chee Seng brand)
1 bottle Black Rice Vinegar (Sing Long Brand)
1 bottle Black Sweet Vinegar(bull dog brand)
2 pcs of rock sugar(white)



Method
1. Heat up wok with sesame oil and add smashed ginger to fry for about 5 minutes over high heat.
2. Once its fragrant, add pork pieces in to fry till semi-cook. Or when the meat turns a pale brown and there is no bloody spots seen.
3. Pour contents into a slow cooker with all the sauces and rock sugar.
4. Slow cook for at least 6 hours or until the meat is tender and falls off the bone.
5. Serve hot with fresh coriander leaves, more sauce and rice!

Thanks for the recipe. We don't have any of the brands that you recommended but I was told (by a confinement nanny) that Pat Chun black vinegar is very good. We have that here,

Btw, it's been a long time since I last spoke to you. Here's wishing you and family a blessed Christmas!

Vivien cheers
