It's been a long while since I've last posted a food recipe on the blog. I have been cooking quite a bit but trying to take photos at the same time has been somewhat difficult. But I'll try to do more in the near future! So today's recipe I wanted to try to make a delicious dish using pork belly for the first time ever and I think it came out successful! I hope you guys like it! It's pretty simple and easy to make and yet it may not be the most healthiest, it's great on top of quinoa/brown rice. ;)
I got the recipe from here and made a few changes by adding regular white granulated sugar instead of rock sugar (which you can still do!). I just didn't have any on hand at the time. Also, when cooking the raw pork belly in the oil, it will splatter all over so please be careful! I had to use a lid to shield myself. haha..
Let's get started..
Slice the pork belly into 1 inch pieces.
Cook the pork belly with vegetable oil in the pan or wok.
Have the chopped green onions and minced ginger ready.
Combine the soy sauces and rice cooking wine together. Then add the green onions and ginger to the mixture.
Put the mixture in a large pot and add the sugar and let it cook to dissolve the sugar. Then add the cooked pork belly in and let it shimmer on medium heat for an hour.
1lb of raw pork belly
1/4 cup of light soy sauce
1/4 cup of dark soy sauce
1/2 cup of rice cooking wine
3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
Minced ginger (small piece)
