Our version of this dish is based on a traditional Vietnamese dish called "Thit Ko", which is normally done with pork belly, braised for hours in young coconut juice.Often served on New Year's eve, there's certainly plenty to celebrate about this dish as it's a deliciously comforting, sweet and sticky dish served with steamed rice and spring onions.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Bring 500ml water to the boil in a lidded pot, stir in the Vietnamese Beef Stock and then add the rice. Cover and simmer on a low heat for 12-15 mins. Then remove from the heat and keep covered.

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in a wok or pan over medium-high heat and fry the pork briefly to brown it on both sides. Remove and set aside. Turn the heat down and add a little more oil and then fry the shallots for 2-3 mins to soften them.

  • 3.

    Sprinkle in the sugar and leave it for 2 mins so that it starts to gently melt and bubble. Stir the shallots and the sugar together and add the Ca Kho To Fish Paste with 30ml of water to the pan. Turn the heat up to medium and stir for 2 mins so that the sauce starts to thicken very slightly.

  • 4.

    Return the pork to the pan and cook for 2 more mins so that the sauce creates a glaze on the pork. If you're adding pak choi to the pork, add it to the pan and cook for 2 mins.

  • 5.

    Add the Sriracha Sauce and spring onions to the pork and mix well. Then serve the pork on top of the rice with a squeeze of lime over the pork (if using).

Thoroughly enjoyed it, a little to hot for the kids but I’d have it the same every time. Will definitely have again.

Linda - Sep 24, 2018

Charlotte - Sep 23, 2018

This dish would have been perfect but unfortunately it way way too spicy and ruined the dish

Hubby said he's been looking for a dish that tastes like that for ages, now he's found it!! Absolutely amazing dish!! Cant wait to try the other recipes in my box!! Even our son, who is fussy about trying new food, has cleared his plate!! Already added it to the next box before I cooked it so I must have known it would be good!! ????????????

Nicola - Sep 20, 2018

Nice, a little warm though

Louise - Sep 18, 2018


Suetying - Sep 16, 2018

Was really good, preferred to have marinated it before hand as the pork colour didn’t turn out as well as the picture. Otherwise would try again maybe with beef instead.

Elizabeth - Sep 15, 2018

It was sooooo delicious!

Tracy - Sep 14, 2018

This is far too spicy for younger kids. This isn’t a family friendly recipe, I didn’t see anywhere on the recipe card to say how to make it without the heat - although it only has 1 in the chilli rating, I think this is an underestimation..... also, now worrying about the other recipes as they have a higher heat rating.... cooking two meals at dinner time isn’t fun.

andrew - Sep 14, 2018

Very good but probably not my favourite

Belinda - Sep 13, 2018

Great flavours - could do with an extra kick. Stock to the rice was a great complement to the pork.

Andrea - Sep 12, 2018


Michelle - Sep 10, 2018

Really tasty meal we did without the pak choi and the flavours were amazing and zingy. I’ll be having this again but will try with the pak choi as I’ll enjoy the extra veg.

Christine - Sep 09, 2018

Nice but too spicy for a family dish.

Philippa - Sep 08, 2018

A little too spicy for our family but easy to cook and tasty.

Rachel - Sep 07, 2018

Very tasty and reasonably straightforward to prepare and cook.

David - Sep 06, 2018

Ignore the ingredients list on the app and use the lesser amounts on the card in the box it tastes much better, also chicken is better than the pork

michelle - Sep 06, 2018

I loved it but my family hated the smell

Kirsty - Sep 04, 2018

Slightly dry but nice flavour and first time I've cooked pork

Jean - Sep 03, 2018

What a meal, my family said they would willingly pay for this in a restaurant. All recipes are very easy to follow.

Kelly - Sep 02, 2018

Absolutely amazing dish, I used sirloin steak instead of pork and omitted the sriracha sauce for the kids (it would’ve been too spicy) but added it to mine... delish!!!
