    Directions

    Blend the shallots and garlic with water to help blend smoothly.
    Fry over medium heat till fragrant in oil. Add in the tau cheo and the coriander powder and stir fry for 1 min, then add in the pork and stir fry for another 1 minute.
    Add 1/2 cup water, the sugar, salt and dark soy sauce and simmer over low heat until the pork is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
    Serve with the French loaves, red and green bird's eye chiles as garnish.
    Tips: If bird's eye chiles are not available or it is too spicy for your taste, an alternative is to use jalapeno sliced thinly and garnish over the dish. 1 jalapeno should be enough for 3 to 4 persons.
