Carmelized Pork

1 lb Fresh pork leg (ham)
1 tb Cooking oil
1 ts Salt
2 ea Green onions
1 ds Pepper
1 tb Fish sauce


Cut the fresh ham into several chunks about 1 1/2 to 2 inches square. Chop the green onion fine. Heat the oil in 2 quart pot, then add the onion and the remaining ingredients, including the pork. Saute, stirring, on medium heat until the meat is brown (about 5 minutes or more). Add 4 cups water and simmer, uncovered, on medium heat for one hour. Add the fish sauce and continue to simmer on medium heat 1 more hour. Most of the water will be absorbed by the meat and the remainder will be slightly thick--or carmelized. Be careful not to burn it. Serve hot as a main dish, with lots of rice. This has a very long life--it may be frozen, refrigerated, reheated, and served as an appetizer, etc.
