This is a very simple dish to cook and is delicious the next day. I usually make a very big batch and freeze the extra. It is very quick to reheat. As an alternative to serving it with rice, you can add some rice noodles and some sliced chillies to make a braised noodle dish. This is one of my favourite ways of using any leftovers.
If you don't like too much fat, let the pot cool and you can easily spoon off the fat from the top.
