Recipe by: Frankie


1 pound ground pork
4 medium shallots, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 star anise
1 TBSP cooking sherry
1 TBSP sesame oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cups water
2 green onion, thinly sliced
For the Rice:
1 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
1 1/2 cups water


1. Heat a wok or large pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add the pork to the pan and cook while breaking up the pork, about 3 minutes.

3. Add the sliced shallot to the pan and stir-fry with the pork until shallots are lightly browned, about 3 more minutes.

4. Stir in the black pepper, star anise, sherry, sesame oil, soy sauce, and water.

5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover the pan and simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

6. While the pork simmers prepare your rice: Add water and uncooked rice to a medium size saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover the pan tightly and reduce heat to low. DO NOT REMOVE THE LID! Cook on low for 10 minutes then turn off the heat and let rest 15 minutes. Once again, DO NOT REMOVE THE LID! After rice has rested 15 minutes you can now remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork.

7. Remove the lid from the pork, increase heat to medium-high and cook until it begins to thicken, 5 to 10 more minutes.

8. Remove the star anise from the pork. Serve the pork and sauce over the rice and garnish with green onion.

Good but a little too salty, I suggest using 1/4 cup of soy sauce instead of 1/2 cup.
