Babi Pongteh (Braised Pork with Salted Beans)

    1 hour 15 mins

    This Nonya braised pork dish is delicious eaten with rice. It also tastes good the next day when all the flavours have melded together. I also use the leftover meat and sauce for a sandwich using a baguette and garnish it with some chopped cilantro, tomatoes and cucumber. Yummy!
