szechuan pork cheeks cooked


A light yet hearty Szechuan classic dish, simply prepared with true authentic taste. Served as it comes or add egg noodles for more substantial meal.


  1. In a blender make a marinade with ½ the oil, garlic, ginger & spices (keep the star anise separate & add to the pan when cooking) then rub into the pork, this can be done up to 24 hours in advance, once marinated rub away the excess marinade.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a large pan, add the pork and fry until browned then add the honey, vinegar & soy, simmer for 2-3 minutes then add the stock & bring to the boil, thicken by whisking in the corn starch then cover & simmer for 1½ - 2 hours until the cheeks are tender.
  3. Next add the peppers & green vegetables, simmer for a couple of minutes.
  4. To finish & serve scatter with the spring onion, chilli & coriander then serve in bowls with lime wedges & noodles.
