Vietnamese Caramelized Pork

This is one very yummilicious meat dish that I would like to recommend to all of you who are meat lovers…yessss it's Gertrude's Vietnamese Caramelized Pork , I got hold of this recipe from her blog and I was immediately wowed by it and I told her I am going to cook this dish for dinner. I knew it would be a hit with the family too. Piggy gal, who doesn’t like pork was wowed by it.

As I was cooking it in my sanctuary kitchen , Piggy gal came out of the room and asked “ Wow, what is that you are cooking , mom ? It smell good ". I told her , it’s Aunty Gertrude’s Vietnamese Caramelized Pork . You can imagine how wonderful the taste is by juz looking at photos here on my blog :) Seriously, it was the most delicious pork dish I have ever cooked thus far. Even Piggy boy who is back for his sem break agreed that this dish is good. The marinade ingredients were well matched and infused into the meat and when stir fried with the caramel sugar , it brought out the most wonderful aroma ever.

Gertrude, thanks for sharing such a wonderful meat dish…easy to prepare and every bite was scrumptious. I added in some left-over sweet peppers from the fridge :) I have added this dish into my dinner menu :))

the meat remains juicy......mmmm

the fish sauce , ginger, garlic and black pepper blends well

Do hop over to My Kitchen Snippets for the recipe

  6. @ Cookin' Canuck : Yup,it does and it is the pork meat dish I have cooked..yum :)

    @ Pearl : Haha, it is a hit with my Piggies :)

    @ Ricardo : Yup, I agree with you :)

    @ ICook4Fun : Hi Gert, Many thanks for sharing this dish...a hit with the Piggies :)

    @ Octopusmum : Hi, no you can't substitute the fish sauce with the soy sauce. It is the fish sauce that is the main star in this dish. Without it, it won't taste nice. You can omit the black pepper if you want but not the fish sauce :)

    Btw the fish do come in small bottle.
