Indonesian Soy-Braised Pork

In the past couple of weeks I have been thinking about an Indonesian dish called Babi Kecap (Soy-Braised Pork) so I decided to call my Mom to get the recipe.

1 lb of pork with some fats (I used pork butts), cut into 1-inch cubed
6 garlic - smashed
1/2 tablespoon of white pepper powder
3-4 tablespoon of sweet soy sauce
4-5 tablespoon of soy sauce
Salt, pepper and sugar - to taste
Fried yellow tofu
Hard-boiled eggs

  • In a medium or large pot, stir-fry the garlic and white pepper powder until fragrant (30 seconds or so) over a medium high heat with a bit of oil
  • Stir in the pork cubes, cooked for another 2-3 minutes until the pork is not pink anymore
  • Add in both soy sauce and sweet soy sauce
  • Add in the enough water to cover the pork plus 1 or 2 more inches extra and cook until it boils
  • Add in the cooked fried yellow tofu and hard boiled eggs
  • Cook until it boils again, lower heat the down and simmer for 1 hour until the pork cubes are soft
  • Adjust the taste with salt, white pepper, soy sauces and a bit of sugar
