Braised Pork in Jasmine and Chicken Ham

I cooked Jasmine Tea Pork (Braised Pork in Jasmine Tea) for New Year’s Day and I would like to share my recipe with you.

Recipe is easy and very simple. Just simmer pork for an hour with Jasmine Tea!! After simmering fatty pork long time, you can reduce fat and rid the meat of its smell.
