1 kilo / 2 lbs pork cubes (get the part with some fat on it like pork shoulder or pork belly)

Oyster sauce – 1 1/2 tbsp

Brown sugar – 1-2 tbsp (depending on how sweet you want it)

Soy sauce – 1/4 cup

Garlic – 6-8 cloves, minced

Ground Pepper

Chinese Mushrooms or mini-bella mushrooms  (optional)

A few drops of sesame oil


1.     Cut the pork into bite size.

2.     Sear the pork.

3.     Mix the oyster sauce,  sugar, soy sauce, bay leaf, ground pepper, garlic.  Pour onto the pan. Bring to a boil. Simmer  until pork is tender.

4. If using, dried Chinese mushrooms, cook it with the pork as it takes awhile to cook them. But if the mushrooms are fresh, just add them when the pork is already tender. Simmer until musrooms are cooked.

5. To bring even more flavor, add a few drops of sesame oil. Eat with rice.
