I run into this recipe, and it reminded me of a dish I made with a friend of mine, a few years back. I loved it then, and decided to see if it would have the same flavors. Well, when I actually started making the food, I also started to strain from the recipe a bit. Adjusting it to what I had available, and then added some here and there... You know how it works. And I have to say, the end result was a lovely combination of flavors, both sweet and savory, hot and smooth - just a delight.
So I post both of the recipes, I don't think you could go wrong with either. So here is the original, and what happened in my kitchen while making it... Hope you enjoy
I used pork with bone, because bone has the flavor factor. I didn't shred it, cause I didn't want to. Could have thought to make the dish meatless, and use beans instead.
The dish had enough garlic in my taste, and the heat from the chili pepper was just a little kick, but not overpowering. The peppers were not mushy, just done. All the components together made such a harmony, including the garnish, that I wouldn't change a thing.
I absolutely fell in love with the dish, it was tasty, took very little effort, and the leftovers were even better than the first time serving. I know will be making this again!
I'm a chef and a pastry chef, and I love food. Preparing a meal for someone is a show of love; for your craft, for the ingredients, and for the ones eating.
