Heat up some oil in a pan then add in the sugar until it dissolves. Add in the pork and mix evenly. The meat should be well coated with the sugar oil blend. Let the pork fat ooze out naturally. Flavor!

Throw in the ginger, star anise, nut meg, and cinnamon then mix them into the meat. Take the potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms you’ve chopped into cubes and add them in the pan.
