Recipe of the Month

This month we include 2 recipes, both perfect for summer.

Spicy Pork (contributed by lar3ry)


1 lb ground pork
1 tbs chile flakes
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1 egg
3 scallions (green onions)
1/4 cup cilantro leaves (fresh)

In a 3-qt saucepan on med-high heat, crumble the ground pork. Stir occasionally until the pork turns from bright pink to grey. Drain saucepan into a colander. Break up any big lumps that may have formed. Put saucepan back on heat and start cooking the garlic for about a minute, until it is golden. Add pork from colander, and add the chile flakes. Mix together well for about three minutes. Add fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved (another minute or two). Add water, and stir until sauce starts to boil. Add tomato paste and stir to thicken. Lower heat to medium.

(Next part is optional, to thicken the sauce even more)

Break an egg into the middle of the sauce. Allow it to start to set, about three minutes. Egg should still be a bit raw on top. Stir egg into the pork sauce for a couple of minutes, until the sauce is a bit paler.

(Continue from here if you skipped last step)

Wait for sauce to boil.

Put cover on saucepan, and turn heat to low. Allow the flavors to mix for about 15 minutes. Stir the sauce on final time, and then add scallions and cilantro. Do not stir after adding greens.

Remove from heat and serve. Traditonally, this is served in a soup bowl and eaten with the fingers with "sticky rice." Alternatively, you can make normal white rice, putting the rice on the bottom of the bowl to absorb the sauce.
