  • Heat the oil.
  • Brown the pork.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, chilies and shallots. Season with fish sauce and dark brown sugar.
  • Saute for about a minute the add the chayote and pour in the broth.
  • Drizzle in more fish sauce.
  • Bring to the boil, cover the pan and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the chayote strips are done, still firm and definitely not mushy.
  • Taste, adjust the seasonings, as needed. Top with snipped cilantro (and more finely sliced bird's eye chili, if you like) before serving.
