Here is the recipe of my Braised Lamb, Pinoy Style.
1 Kilo leg of lamb, cut crosswise
1/2 garlic, crushed
2 thumb size ginger, sliced
1 stick cinnamon
3-4 pieces star anise
1-2 tbsp. peppercorns
2-3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 cup dark soy sauce
1/4 cup black bean sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch
salt to taste
1 small bundle spring onion chopped
In a large sauce pan put the lamb and fill with water up to about 1” above the meat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Drained the boiled lamb in a colander and rinse in a running water to remove scum and return to the sauce pan. Add in fresh water up to about 1” above the meat then add in all the remaining ingredients except the, spring onion, cornstarch and salt, replace lid. Bring to a boil and simmer at medium to low heat for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, add more water as necessary, or until very tender and the meat start to fall out from the bones. Reduce liquid to about half then correct saltines if required. Thicken sauce with the cornstarch diluted in 1/4 cup of water. Cook for about a minute more. Serve garnish with spring onion.
