1/2 tsp five-spice powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsps vegetable oil or lard
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.
