The silky yolks of softly set fried eggs are a key com­po­nent in this easy Thai-style din­ner. Pierce the yolks and stir them into the pork mix­ture to com­bine the rich flavours. Serve over cooked jasmine or other long-grain rice.

3 tbsp sodium-re­duced chicken broth

1 tbsp sodium-re­duced soy sauce

1 tbsp cider vine­gar

1 tsp fish sauce

¼ tsp gran­u­lated sugar
