Braised Pork with Ginger and Star Anise

This aromatic dish draws flavors from various Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines. Star anise lends the braise spicy warmth and complexity, while browned shallots and white pepper add depth and earthiness. We use fresh ginger two ways: cooked with the pork so its flavor mellows while its aroma perfumes the braising liquid, and stirred in finely grated and fresh at the very end to add sharpness to balance the richness of the pork. To complete the meal, served with jasmine rice along with a steamed vegetable, such as baby bok choy.

Tip

Don’t use regular soy sauce; it will overwhelm the braise with saltiness. Low-sodium soy sauce provides ample salinity, deep color and plenty of umami.
