Dome Kim - Pork & Egg in Soy Sauce
I've seen people evolve this dish by adding potatoes in with the egg. This is one example of generations evolving quickly in North America and the reason why my blog is about authentic Thai and Lao food. If you are serving Dome Kim to Thai and Lao people, do not add potatoes into the pot.
Stir Fry Recipe: Dome Kim
1 inch ginger
2 pounds pork that has fat, meat, and skin sections
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
½ tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 star anis (optional - also used in Lao Pho)
Thinly slice ginger. Chop pork to bite size pieces so that each piece has the fat, meat, and skin. Boil eggs for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and remove shell from egg. In a large pot of high heat add oil and garlic. Stir until garlic is brown. Add pork pieces and stir until brown which is about 10 minutes. Pour water into pot so that it just covers the pork. Add ginger, sugar, soy sauce, salt, and the hard boiled egg. Cook for 40 minutes while stirring occasionally. Turn heat off. Add fish sauce and stir again. Serve immediately with Lao sticky rice or khao chow.
Dome Kim is one of the rare Thai and Lao dishes that does not call for any chilies. So serve with Dome Kim with the Classic Hot Sauce and Roasted Tomato Chili Sauce. The best Dome Kim dish has pork pieces that contain the fat, meat and skin sections.
