Mild Tangy Braised Pork Shoulder ~ 酸红烧猪肩

 


This is a mild gingery and tangy dish, not too spicy and with the correct amount of sweetness to whet your appetite.   This a very appetising dish as I like to cook it till semi-dry so that the sauce can be nicely infused into the meat to make it more tasty.
