Caramelized Pork

I scored at the grocery store and ended up with a ton of pork butt for a great price. Now I had to figure out what to do with it. I could do the classic Pulled Pork but I wanted to switch it up. I had seen caramelized pork with a more Asian twist but as I am not super knowledgeable in Asian themed cooking, I mixed it up and tried it out my way. I didn’t have fish sauce or coconut water but I used some chili powder and garlic to give the meat some flavor to blend with the sweet caramel. These came out tender with a nice sticky coating. 

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon water

2 lbs boneless pork shoulder or butt

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon chili powder

Salt and pepper

1.25 cups water

Instructions: 

1) Cut pork into 1.5 inch pieces. Add brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of water to a large pot or Dutch oven on medium heat. Stir till bubbly and looks like caramel.

2) Add pork and remaining ingredients into pot and mix well. Lower heat to a slow simmer and cook for 1.5-2 hours till the liquid is cooked down and the pieces start cooking in rendered fat.

3) Once the pieces become brown and sticky on the outside, it’s done. Serve immediately.
