Try this recipe and you will not regret :-). Simple and easy but you can add some star aniseed and bok choy (pechay). I caramelized the sugar for its aroma and thickness of the sauce, but if you don't want to do it this way it's alright.Enjoy your cooking.
1 pork leg (pata)
3 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 tablespoons sugar or according to your taste
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
3 cups water (add if needed)
1 tablespoon pepper corn (pamintang buo)
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a big pot, put the sugar over medium heat then caramelized it, after caramelizing the sugar, add the soy sauce, pineapple juice, pepper corn, garlic, water and the pork leg then cook over medium heat until tender.
2. When it's tender, add the oyster sauce and stir well, let it simmer for few minutes then add salt and pepper if needed, allow to simmer for a minute then turn off the heat.
3. Serve hot with a big smile :-).
If the pork leg takes time to cook just add water and allow to simmer until tender, then when almost done cooking increase the heat to high to evaporate it to thicken the sauce.
