  • Hello chi Helen, ☺️
    Is it okay to use coconut cream, and if I dilute it with water ? I've never used cream before and have tried it with coconut juice, also very delicious ❤️

    Love your videos chi Helen !

  • I just made this and it turned out great however i think the 1/2 cup of fish sauce is a bit much.. i suggest doing 1/4 cup first and then adding more if needed. Thanks for the recipe helen!

  • Thank you Helen, you are one of the most reliable cooking youtuber in my mind.

    Failed my Viet Stew Pork many times before I found you recipes. Already cook it many times and it’s HIGHLT RECOMMENDED!!!!

    This recipe remove the “horrible pork flavor” and the gravy is so fatty yet delicious. Very smooth and aromatic. Simple ingredients creates complex taste.

    The coconut water is really the magic ingredient, it’s not the same with sugared water. Must try if possible.

    Also, to me, make caramel in oil is easier than in water. Water doesn’t seem to have the heat to brown the sugar before it vapour and leave Stan to the pot. Fried caramel is fantastic!!!

    Used to cook in a stainless steel pot, but I think CLAY POT is way better. Clay pot is thick with a heavy lid, keep the heat stable so soften the meat and season the pork chunk better.

  • Why called Thịt kho Tàu ? Does Chinese people used fish sauce in their kitchen ?  Correct me if I'm wrong.
