Pork Stewed with Tomatoes Recipe – Resep Babi Masak Tomat

A simple recipe from Kalimantan, where pork (particularly wild boar from the jungle) is popular among the Dyaks.

Ingredients :

  • 11/2 lbs (700 g) pork
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 4–6 garlic chives (kucai) or spring onions, cut into lengths
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, thick bottom third only, outer layers discarded, inner part bruised
  • 1 cup (250 ml) water

Spice Paste

  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2–3 red finger-length chilies, deseeded
  • 4 shallots, peeled

Method :

  1. Cut the pork into bite-sized chunks.
  2. Grind the Spice Paste ingredients to a smooth paste in a mortar or blender, adding a little water if necessary to keep the mixture turning.
  3. Bring the Spice Paste and all the other ingredients to a boil in a wok or saucepan, then simmer over medium heat until the pork is tender, 3 to 5 minutes, adding a little sugar if the tomatoes are quite sour and a little water if the sauce dries up before the meat is cooked. Remove from the heat and serve immediately with steamed rice.
