Thịt kho is a common staple in Vietnamese homes. Its made of pork belly that has been slowly braised over low heat to tenderize the meat and absorb all the flavors from the fish sauce and coconut soda. The end result is a caramelized and tender pork belly in a reduced sweet and savory sauce. Pour the sauce over your braised pork on rice, add an egg, and you have the very definition of Vietnamese comfort food.
