  1. Cover pork with water and bring to a boil. Drain water, rinse pork and set aside. This removes the strong porcine taste and keeps the finished broth clear.
  2. Pound/grind garlic, cilantro roots, and peppercorns into a semi-smooth paste. Fry paste in oil until golden brown.
  3. Add pork, star anise, Maggi Seasoning, ginger, soy sauce, and cinnamon. Pour in just enough stock/water to just cover pork. Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  4. Stir in the eggs and simmer until pork is tender, approximately 30-60 minutes longer.
