Cook time

1 Pre­pare the pork belly

In a lightly oiled fry­ing pan, Sear the pork for one minute to re­move any ex­cess fat. Set aside.

2 Braise the pork belly

Heat some oil in a large pot, and fry the brais­ing aro­mat­ics un­til fra­grant. Add the soy sauce, black vine­gar, rock sugar and pork belly, then enough water to cover the meat. Braise over medium heat for one and a half to two hours un­til the pork is ten­der.

3 Rest the pork belly

Re­move the pan from the heat and skim off any fat that has col­lected on top of the liq­uid. Add the Shaox­ing wine and let the pork belly rest in the brais­ing sauce for 30 to 45 min­utes. Test to see if the pork is soft enough. If not, bring the pan to the boil, re­move from the heat and re­peat the rest­ing process. It’s pos­si­ble to pre­pare the pork one day be­fore serv­ing.

4 Serve

Cut the pork belly into smaller pieces and serve with the brais­ing sauce.
