Cooking InstructionsHide 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 Scallion (1 bunch), 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 (4 Tbsp), 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.
