No Whim Pata Tim :)

Easier than it looks, promise.  Never even thought I can pull it off the first time I cooked it, but I did. Now I can cook it with my eyes closed, of course it's better when I cook it with my eyes open ;)

What you need

1 front pork leg
5 pcs Star Anise
1 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup oyster sauce
2 pcs beef cubes
6 cups water
Pepper corns

What you need to do :)

Wash the pork leg, rub it with salt to remove all the icky things stuck to the skin. Prick it with a fork in several places before putting in a pot, bend it to make it fit DON'T slice or chop it. . I like to cook mine in a palayok but any ole pot will do.

Add all the ingredients to the pot and cook on high fire until it comes to a boil. Turn the heat low, cook for an hour then give it a taste test, adjust taste accordingly, add sugar or soy sauce. cook for another half hour or until the meat is really tender and the sauce turns sticky.

You can add button mushrooms or young corn if you want :)

Serve in a bed of pechay Baguio for cuteness factor :D

(Excuse the typos and whatever else there is that doesn't look right... I was doing this in a hurry)
