Black Pepper Pork Belly


I made this porky dish over the weekend.  The meat was tasty and tender and it fell apart easily.  You can serve this with rice or on a bed of noodles or just with plain bread.  It's finger licking good!

  • 650 gm pork belly, skin removed, sliced

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
