coconut milk skillet pork recipe

Not too long time ago i made this Sticky Caramel Pork recipe and it was a hit! So i decided to make more pork recipes,to play with flavors and combinations. Pork is very affordable and easy to work with, a great bonus is that my kids will eat anything pork related, so am i.

Made this coconut milk skillet pork for lunch and we got some leftovers for the next day, which i warmed up in a skillet with an egg, so basically created a new recipe, ha! It was so good, planning to cook it again this week!
