Braised Vegan Roast "Pork"
Vegan "pork" sautéed in a sweet and salty peppercorn sauce. Super meaty, chewy, and so flavorful!
- 2 tbsp 30ml oil
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 shallot minced
- 1/2 small chili sliced (optional)
- 2 cups about 12 pieces chopped vegan pork
- 2 tbsp 30ml soy sauce
- 1/3 cup 80ml coconut water
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp fresh green pepper or use 1/4 ground black pepper
- for serving: lime zest fresh cilantro, noodles or rice
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic, shallot, and chili, and sautée for about 3 minutes or until shallots are soft.
Add the vegan "pork" and sautée for another 2-3 minutes. Remove the vegan "pork" from the skillet and set aside on a small plate.
Pour the soy sauce, coconut water, sugar, and pepper into the skillet. Bring to a simmer and let it reduce for 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce starts to thicken. Next, add the vegan "pork" and sautée for 2 minutes, stirring from time to time to coat with the sauce.
Serve immediately on top of rice or noodles and top with lime zest and fresh cilantro.
