Ingredients

2 lb (1 package)
Chinese broccoli, snap peas, or any combination of vegetables you like!
1 large bunch
Garlic, minced
7 cloves
Freshly grated ginger
2 Tbsp
Hoisin sauce
3 Tbsp
Sugar
2 Tbsp
Liquid aminos
2 Tbsp
Sesame oil + 1 tbsp
1 Tbsp
Kosher salt + 1 tbsp
1 Tbsp
Red pepper flakes
1 tsp
Uncooked rice (optional)
1 cup

Utensils

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Dutch oven
  • Wok

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

 In a large mixing bowl, combine pork necks, 1 tbsp salt, garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, sugar, liquid aminos, chili flakes, and 1 Tbsp sesame oil. Let marinade for 1 hour in the fridge.

Transfer all contents into a large Dutch oven, cover, and braise in the oven for 2 hours. Turn pork necks over halfway through. Remove necks to a cutting board, and transfer braising liquid to a hot wok or large saute pan.

Trim veggies and add to the wok with a small dash of salt.

Remove all meat from pork necks, in small pieces. There won't be huge pieces of meat, but just bits of delicious, tender meat. Be careful, because there are lots of bones in the neck. Transfer all meat to a wok, and let saute for 5 minutes, until veggies are thoroughly cooked. Serve with rice, or by itself.

Note: Do not throw the bones away. Store them in your freezer so you can make a stock!
