1 tablespoon soy sauce paste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar
3 dashes ground white pepper
½ pound ground pork
⅓ cup Taiwanese pickled cucumbers with brine
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 small shallots

Push pork and shallots to the sides of the skillet, making a space in the center. Add garlic, ginger, and star anise; stir.
