Method

Peel the garlic and shallots and crush together, mixing with the sugar, soy sauce and five-spice powder, salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large casserole or pan with a lid, brown the meat all over.

Add the spice mixture and spread well over the meat.

Add 2 fl oz water to the pan, cover tightly and turn the heat down to medium/low.

Cook the pork gently for one-and-a-half to two hours, or until well cooked through.

Turn the joint over from time to time, adding a little extra water if necessary.

When the meat is done, put it on a hot carving plate.

Blend the remaining juices to make a gravy and serve with the meat.
