Tamarind Pork

This is a simple dish that is flavorful and great for the hot summer weather. I served this with stir fried summer squash from our garden.
1 lb pork butt or shoulder pork, cut into 3" cubes
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 small potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 Tbsp. tamarind paste
1 cup chicken stock
1 piece dried tamarind peel
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
2 tsp. lemon grass powder
2 tsp. garlic, minced
1 tsp. chilli powder
1. Marinade pork with spices and set aside. Heat oil in pan and fry onions until soft and fragrant.  Add pork and brown on all sides. Mix tamarind paste with stock.
2. Add stock and tamarind peel to the pork. Stir to mix until sauce is fragrant, then add potatoes. Cover and simmer until sauce has thickens. Remove tamarind peel and serve hot with rice and a side vegetable dish.
