Indonesian Sweet and Sour Pork

This is one of my absolute favourite dishes. Soooo tasty!
The pork can easily be substituted with turkey.

(serves 4)

600gr pork (little over 1lb) in bit-sized cubes
1oz butter
1tbs honey
1 clove of garlic
2 cups chicken stock
3 tbs soy sauce

Melt butter and honey in a cooking pot. When it is very dark brown add the meat and brown it. Add chopped garlic, paprika, soy and chicken stock. Leave to simmer for approx. 30 minutes.
Serve with rice and rice taffel accompaniments. E.g. coconut flour, rasins, peanuts, apple, cucumber, banana, pineapple and whatever else floats your boat.

3 chicken breasts
