Have you cooked any of those recipes that call for only 3 or 4 ingredients?
They promise to be easy and delicious, but then you discover:
A) Fine, they’re easy.
B) They’re definitely NOT delicious.
C) One or more of those ingredients come in package with all sorts of other stuff that’s probably not good for you.
So what if I told you I had recipe like that?
And: It’s quick, crazy easy to make, and sooo yummy!
Bonus: One of the ingredients is pork.
I feel like this is an appropriate time to tell you how much I love pork.
Bacon! Roast! Dumplings! Sausages! Aaaahhhh!You hear me? 🙂
The meat itself is so flavourful that usually it needs a super simple technique like boiling or roasting with just some salt to make it taste heavenly.
Do you love pork?
Please make this pork salad.
And don’t be fooled by the simplicity.
It will taste awesome. Your stomach will love you 🙂
Dohkhlieh (Meghalayan Pork Salad)
Recipe courtesy: My friend Alicia
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
500 g pork (meat with some fat, skin removed)
2–3 medium onions, finely chopped
1 large root of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
salt, to taste
5–6 green chillies (optional- but if you have a tolerance for some heat, please go for it. It improves the taste by miles!)
1. Cut the pork into medium size pieces and put into a pressure cooker. Add about a cup of water and salt to taste. Let it cook on high heat for about 10–15 minutes.
2. Once the pork is done, the steam has escaped, and the cooker has cooled, remove the pieces and leave on tissue to dry. (Use the wonderful pork stock for something else please. Like soup!) Now cut the pork into small pieces (about 1/2 inch), retaining the fatty bits.
3. Mix the pork, onions, ginger, and chilli (if using) in a bowl. Taste and then add some salt if needed. Mix well and eat at room temperature, with some warm rice if you want.
