  • Serves: 6
  • Prep: 60mins
  • Cook: 150mins

Cook’s tips
Cooking the pork slowly stops the meat from getting tough. The idea here is to gently cook the meat without making it go tense from quick heating, the slower the better.


  • 1 Pork shin, around 1.5kg, bone and skin removed
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • Table salt
  • A handful of coriander (picked and washed)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 100ml oyster sauce
  • 200ml sweet soy
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 100ml fish sauce
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 6 medium British Lion eggs
  • 100ml vegetable oil


  1. Firstly blanch the pork shin in simmering water to remove any inequalities within the meat. To do this place the shin in cold, salted water and slowly bring to the boil. Once starting to bubble, simmer the meat until it is cooked throughout without boiling too hard (about one hour).
  2. Next make the paste. In a pestle and mortar add the garlic, ginger and white pepper and pound to a paste, use some coarse sea salt as an abrasive if necessary.
  3. Fry the paste in the oil, moving constantly until it is golden brown. Then add the stock, fish sauce, sugar, sweet soy, sugar, bay leaves and oyster sauce.
  4. Next add the blanched pork shin and leave on a medium heat with a lid on the pot for two to three hours. By this time the meat should fall off the bone and the sauce should be loose but rich in taste, almost like a broth. At this stage add the eggs and soft boil in the sauce for five minutes, then remove and peel the shell.
  5. Serve the pork parlow with rice and some of the sauce topped with coriander and the soft boiled egg on top oozing into the broth.

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
