Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Scoop out 2 teaspoons of liquid from the jar of red fermented tofu. Set aside.
Step 2
Wash the Leek (1) and thinly slice the white and green parts only. Reserve the top for making stocks.
Step 3
Peel and thinly slice the Fresh Ginger (1 in) and Garlic (3 cloves) .
Step 4
Combine the leek, garlic, ginger and Dried Chili Peppers (2) in a bowl.
Step 5
Cut the Skin-On Pork Belly (1 lb) into 3/4-inch pieces.
Step 6
Heat a wok or cast iron pan over medium high heat and sear the pork belly for 5 minutes, making sure to evenly brown on each side. When nice and brown and plenty of fat has rendered, remove the pork and set aside. Drain fat from pan.
Step 7
Add Canola Oil (1 Tbsp) to the wok, swirling to coat bottom and sides. Add chiles, ginger, garlic, and leek and cook, tossing constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Step 8
Add reserved pork and cook, tossing often, for 3 minutes.
Step 9
Add Rock Candy (1 piece) , Dark Soy Sauce (1 tsp) , Red Fermented Tofu (3 Tbsp) , and Red Fermented Tofu Liquid. Cook, tossing, until ingredients are browned, about 6 minutes.
Step 10
Add the A&W Soda (12 fl oz) , Water (1 cup) , Bay Leaves (2) , and the pods of Star Anise (2) . Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until pork is tender, about 40–50 minutes.
Step 11
Uncover, increase heat to high, and cook, stirring, until liquid reduces to 2 tbsp., about 15 minutes.
Step 12
Serve with White Rice (to taste) and enjoy!
