VIETNAMESE CARAMELIZED SALTY PORK ( THIT KHO)
This dish is very fatty and a little salty, but is so delicious and easy to make. You just have to make sure that you have the ingredients ready to begin the cooking. Adding shrimp to this recipe makes an unbelievably tasty surprise. One of my all time favorites.

- Wash and cut pork belly into 3/4 inch (cubed)pieces.
- In a dry saucepan, melt sugar on high heat until it becomes golden brown but not candied.
- Immediately, add pork belly pieces, onions, pepper, and garlic. Stir to get a golden color on the meat.
- Add fish sauce and water, deglaze, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes (stirring occasionally) until sauce thickens a little. Add a little more fish sauce and black pepper to taste.
- Serve over white rice.
- Note: Some vietnamese add whole hard boiled eggs (better if you fry the hard boiled eggs in a little oil until golden brown skin) along with the liquids. Adding shrimp is also delicious.

CARAMELIZED PORK BELLY (THIT KHO)
This dish is very popular in Vietnamese households for everyday eating but is also traditionally served during Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year. The longer you cook the pork belly, the more tender it becomes. If you make this dish ahead, the fat will congeal on the surface, making it easier to remove, and a little healthier! This also allows the flavors to meld a little more. Serve with rice.

- Bring 2-3 quarts of water boiling on high, enough to fully submerge the pork. Add about 1 teaspoon of salt and the pork to water for 2-3 minutes just to clean it. Drain then rinse the pork under running water until the water is clear.
- Heat sugar in a large wok or pot over medium heat, continuously stirring until it melts and caramelizes into a light brown syrup. Burns easily so keep a close eye and be careful to not let it get candied.
- As soon as sugar reaches the nice amber color, immediately add pork and increase heat to high. Cook and stir to render some of the pork fat, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Add fish sauce, soy sauce, salt, and black pepper; stir to evenly coat pork and allow it to get the color on the meat.
- Stir shallots and garlic into the wok.
- Pour in coconut water and bring to a boil. Liquid should just cover the pork.
- Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until pork is tender, about 1 hour. Slowly stir and check about every 20 minutes while the pork is simmering to make sure that the liquid doesn't evaporate too much. Add water a little at a time if sauce seems to be drying out.
- Remove cover, add hard-boiled eggs. Continue simmering for about 30-40 minutes with the lid off to allow the liquid to reduce into a nice concentrated sauce, stirring occasionally to prevent meat from drying.
- Remove from the heat and let stand, about 10 minutes. Skim the fat from the surface of the dish.
- Top with green onions for garnish.

VIETNAMESE CARAMELIZED PORK (THIT KO) - INSTANT POT VERSION
Sweet and salty braised pork with eggs. If you can't find coconut soda, you can use coconut water instead. You can also mix in or sub pork shoulder for a leaner version. There are many versions from different families. This is what we like coming from a half Lao/half Viet home.

- Place eggs into the instant pot on a wire rack. Pour in 1 cup of water and set on high pressure for 5 minutes. Do a quick release and put the eggs in an ice bath. Peel and set aside.
- Combine the pork with garlic, shallot, salt, black pepper, msg, soy sauce in a large bowl. Let this marinate while you make the caramel sauce. You can also do this step ahead of time and just let it sit overnight in the fridge.
- Set the pot to Saute mode on high. Add in the marinated pork and saute for 5-7 minutes until the garlic and shallots are soft and the pork has some color. Deglaze with 1 cup of water making sure to scrape up all the bits. Turn off the pot.
- Time to make the caramel sauce! In a separate small frying pan, caramelize the sugar until it reaches a dark golden brown. Careful not to burn it. Watch it carefully! Slowly pour in ¼ cup of water and stir to make a sauce. Add to the instant pot. (You can also caramelize the sugar while your meat browns.).
- Add the hard boiled eggs, coconut soda, star anise pods and (if needed) just enough water to cover the pork. It should not take more than 2 cups. Cook it on high pressure for 30 minutes and NPR for 15 minutes.*.
- Add the fish sauce and salt to taste (if needed). Serve with rice and pickled vegetables!
- *OPTIONAL - Once you remove the lid, set it to Saute mode on high for 15 minutes to reduce the liquid by 1/3. You don't have to worry too much with the instant pot overboiling or over reducing because it will maintain the heat level and switch to "keep warm" when the timer shuts off.
