Vietnamese Caramelized Salty Pork ( Thit Kho)

Time: 40 mins


  • 1 1/2 lbs pork belly
  • 1 onion, roughly diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup water


  • 1 Wash and cut pork belly into 3/4 inch (cubed)pieces.
  • 2 In a dry saucepan, melt sugar on high heat until it becomes golden brown but not candied.
  • 3 Immediately, add pork belly pieces, onions, pepper, and garlic. Stir to get a golden color on the meat.
  • 4 Add fish sauce and water, deglaze, and bring to a boil.
  • 5 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.
  • 6 Serve over white rice.
  • 7 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.
