Braised pork belly



This is a very simple porky dish.  I just braised it with some spice, garlic, soya sauces and it turned out quite tasty.  Should have added in some hard boiled eggs but forgotten all about it after I left it to simmer and attended to other chores.  Nonetheless, it was well received when it was served for dinner.











This dish will go down very well with a bowl of hot steaming white rice or even a simple mantou.
