Recipe: Thai Braised Pork Collar Rice

Braised pork leg rice, aka khao kha moo ข้าวขาหมู is one of my favourite Thai rice dishes. A famous Thai street food fish, a whole pork leg is braised in spices and soy sauce until tender and falling off the bone.

However, when I make it at home, I use pork collar instead of pork leg, mainly because my kids prefer this leaner cut of meat. Pork collar still has pretty good marbling and some fat to keep the meat nice and moist when braised. Once braised for two hours, I roughly shred the meat and serve it with rice, Chaoshan sour vegetables and soft boiled eggs. Utterly delicious!
