The Easiest Asian Pork Dinner

This is the simplest asian comfort dish ever. Four ingredients to make something as tasty as this cannot be beaten. Served with a bowl of plain rice and a plate of Chinese vegetables, dinner is ready with a minimum of effort. An easy dinner for when you can start the cooking early; great for whenever a staggered dinner is required. The sauce on its own stirred through rice is a treat! My children love this when they want something comforting and homey.

  1. Place everything in a heavy based pan and simmer gently with the lid on for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is meltingly soft. Alternatively, just pop everything in an oven safe dish with a lid, and bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours at 160 degrees Celcius.
  2. Serve and enjoy.

Ketjap Manis is a favorite and when you say this is an easy recipe -it is one step simplicity. I did mine covered in the oven for 1 hour 45 minutes at 325F but I cut the recipe back to apprx 10 oz of pork sirloin steak. I think I should have left it in the oven for a full 2 hours - it was moist but not fall apart tender, still it was tender.. Very enjoyable I give it a full 5 stars for flavor

This was quite good. Dave loved the flavour of the sauce. I cut my pork into bite size pieces and cook in a covered casserole dish with one burner going on low in our hooded BBQ. Thanks for posting.

oh my, this is good. prepared and served the dish as suggested and would give it ten stars definitely as this is a keeper. our only complaint was the servings were not big enough because it was just too delicious - have to cook double (or maybe triple) next time. i'm sure it would be great the next day if we had any leftovers...
