Looking for Chinese porktail stew recipe

I've had no luck trying to google any recipe. This was a favourite childhood dish but I have no idea where to start. It's not like chinese oxtail stew, i.e. not dark and anise flavoured. Maybe a Toisanese recipe? If no one knows what I'm talking about, I would also be interested in recipes for porktail stew generally, maybe a Caribean style stew? Thanks in advance.

  1. I know of only one home recipe. It's braise with fermented tofu cubes.
    Start by searing cut up pork tail in a little oil and smashed garlic and ginger slices until brown and fragrant. Smash 4-6 cubes in a cup of water, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1 tbspn soy sauce in a bowl and add to wok or pan. Add enough water to barely cover. Add more cubes to taste. Simmer for at least 45 mins low heat once it comes to a boil.
    You should end up with soft porktails in a creamy style sauce.
