Adobo Pork Shanks with Fried Rice Directions
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
- Sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy ovenproof skillet over high heat. Sear the pork on all sides, about 5 minutes per side. Add the leeks, garlic, ginger and lemongrass and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the veal stock, coconut milk, soy sauce, vinegar and dried chile. Cover the skillet and cook in the oven until the pork is fork-tender, about 3 hours.
- Transfer the pork to a platter and sprinkle with scallions. Drizzle with the pan juices. Serve with Fried Rice.
- Pulse the sambal oelek, garlic, shallots and lime juice in a food processor until coarsely pureed. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and saute the celery and leeks for about 2 minutes. Add the sambal mixture and cook for 1 minute. Add the rice and soy sauce and saute until well coated and heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the chives, cilantro and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

- Pork : Pork is the culinary name for the meat of the domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). It is the most commonly consumed meat worldwide, with evidence of pig husbandry dating back to 5000 BC.
Pork is eaten both freshly cooked and preserved. Curing extends the shelf life of the pork products. Ham, smoked pork, gammon, bacon and sausage are examples of preserved pork. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork.
Pork is the most popular meat in the Western world and in Central Europe. It is also very popular in East and Southeast Asia (Mainland Southeast Asia, Philippines, Singapore, East Timor, and Malaysia). It is highly prized in Asian cuisines, especially in China, for its fat content and texture.
Some religions and cultures prohibit pork consumption, notably Islam and Judaism.
