Halfway through the cooking stage

When you look at the ingredients for this recipe, it looks wrong. Way too many onions for a start. Well give it a try, the onions caramelise and just make the dish sweeter. It's really worth making.

Chef's notes

I used 1 large pork tenderloin fillet for 2 greedy people as I prefer it to the more fatty rib cut. I also added a ladle of the wine vinegar from my my Homemade lazy ginger


Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
