Braised Pork Leg with Tausi is an alternative cooking method should you do not fancy or like the vinegary taste of paksiw na pata. I have not used vinegar for this recipe, instead the pork leg slices were slow cooked or braised with soy sauce, sugar and with star anise, as a final ingredient the braised pork leg was topped with salted black beans or tausi. The recipe is more like a Chinese style braised pork salty sweet and with that familiar aroma of star anise.
