Wow! Look at that fat!! This is the kind of dish that I will cook for like once a year! LOL! Well, it is true because my family and I are not fond of the fat that "melts in your mouth". So, we only eat the meat and all the delicious sauces with some steamed rice. What a comfort food!
Braised Pork Belly
2 1/2 to 3 lbs Pork Belly, cut into big chunks ( 3 to 4 inch)
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
4 cups Water
1/2 cup Sake
1 1 1/2 inch Ginger, bruised
5 stalks Scallions
5 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Mirin
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Blanch the pork belly for 15 minutes. Drain and make sure to get rid of any impurity.
With a large pot, combine the water, sake, mirin, light and dark soy sauce, ginger, sugar, scallions and the pork belly. Bring it to a boil.
Then simmer on a low heat for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately with some greens along with it.
