Preparation

  • Use a large dutch oven or heavy pot big enough to lay the pork belly insside. Heat up the oil, then add the ginger and garlic.
  • Then add the five spice powder and other spices. Cook for about 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Then add the pork, skin side down over the garlic and spices. Add enough water to completely cover the belly and a bit more. Add the dark and light soy sauce.
  • Put the lid on the pot and turn the heat up to high and bring the pot to a boil. Skim any foamy scum from the top.
  • Then, open the lid slightly, and let simmer over low heat for at least 3 hours (skim occasionally) or until the pork is falling off the bone tender.
  • Once the belly is ready, remove it from the pot. Then reduce the sauceto a thick, caramel like consistency.
  • To serve, warm back the pork belly. Slice it thinly and lay on a plate. Drizzle the gravy and garnish with sprigs of cilantro.
  • Alternatively you can serve the pork belly slices with steamed Chinese buns.
