This pork with soy sauce dish is delicious, easy to make and one of the few Balinese dishes that do not require a "spice sauce." Indeed, beyond the sweet and thin soy sauces (which you can buy at a Thai market), it doesn't call for any rare ingredients.
I doubled the original recipe as I was cooking for 8 people (this was one of 4 dishes I ended up serving) but didn't make any changes beyond that. I cooked it with a minimun of chilies, as I don't like my food too spicy, if you like yours on the spicy side you can use more (up to about 20). I was very happy with the results and I'm sure to make this dish again, specially as I have tons of sweet & thin soy sauces left over.
Pork with soy sauce
3 lbs boneless pork shoulder, cubed 4 tbsp oil 10 shallots, peeled & sliced 10 cloves garlic, peeled & sliced 6" ginger, peeled & sliced lengthwise 8 tbsp. sweet soy sauce 4 tbsp. thin soy sauce 2 tsp. ground black pepper 4 cups chicken stock 10 Thai chilies
Heat oil over medium heat in a heavy saucepan. Add sallots and garlic and fry until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the pork and ginger and cook for 2 minutes. Add sweet soy sauce, thin soy sauce and black pepper. Mix and cook for 1 minutes. Add chicken stock and chilies. Simmer over medium heat for about 1 hour, until the pork is done and most of the sauce has evaporated.
