Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Put the cut Pork Belly (3 lb) pieces in a deep pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a gentle boil for 5 minutes. We’re trying to get rid of some of the impurities.
Step 2
Remove off the stove, drain, and while running cool water over it, rub each piece to clean.
Step 3
Heat the Vegetable Oil (1 Tbsp) on a medium flame, in a deep heavy pot, and go in with the Scallions (3) , Fresh Ginger (3 slices) , and Garlic (2 cloves) . Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Step 4
Add the cleaned pieces of pork and stir well. Turn up the heat to a medium-high.
Step 5
Add the Shaoxing Cooking Wine (1/4 cup) , Light Soy Sauce (3/4 cup) , Dark Soy Sauce (1/2 cup) , Water (1 cup) , and bring to a boil.
Step 6
As it comes to a boil, reduce to a very gentle simmer and add the Rock Sugar (1/3 cup) . Cover the pot and allow this to slowly braise for 2.5-3 hours. Stir every 20 minutes or so.
Step 7
If you find that the liquid is drying up too fast you can always add a bit more water. Once ready, you’ll have tender pieces of pork with a lovely gravy.
