From the Spekko kitchen

  • Fish sauce is almost the most common ingredient in Thai cooking. To substitute use 1/3 cup of soya sauce or Worcestershire sauce mixed with 1 mashed anchovy.
  • This dish goes well with Spekko Parboiled Long Grain Rice as well.
  • Use any cut of deboned pork for this dish.
