Bite sized chunks of pork take on the deep flavors of soy sauce, garlic and dried mushrooms in this fragrant and delicious Asian-style stew.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 (5 pound) pork leg, cut into bite size pieces
- 4 ounces dried wood ear mushrooms
- 5 tablespoons soy sauce
- 10 cloves minced garlic
- 4 cups water
Wash garlic and leave skin intact; wash and soak all of the mushrooms until soft.
Put the pork, mushrooms, soy sauce and garlic in a large pot. Add water, put heat on low, and let simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature of pork has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
