  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 100 ml Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Soy Sauce

  2. When caramelised add the balance of water, the soy sauce and salt into the pan.
  3. Bring to the boil and add the pork cut into small strips.

This rich dish can be modified to contain small strips of tofu or seitan which are added to the caramel gravy. This is a very delicious and meat reducing variation.
