Pork Belly Stew



I tried  cooking this pork belly stew in the thermal pot for dinner thinking that it'll save some time.  However, I found that the heat from the thermal pot was not enough to really tenderise the meat and so ended up cooking this on low heat in a normal pot for another hour.  It did make it in time for dinner and paired very well with a bowl of hot white rice and a vegetable dish in tow.

  • 600 gm pork belly cut into pieces and seasoned with some salt
  • 6 pieces Shitake mushrooms, soaked and stemmed

  • 1 Tbsp nam yue (red fermented bean curd)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

Method  .
