Saucy Pork Belly
- 1000-1500 grams Pork Belly, blanched with boiling water *see tips* and cut into 3cm cubes
- 3 tablespoon dark soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon raw sugar, (or rapadura)
- 10 g sesame oil
- 3-5 clove garlic
- 2-3 spring onions, cut in 3rds
- 1 cm piece of ginger, (or 1 ts of chopped ginger)
- 3 tablespoon cornflour, (optional)
- 2 tablespoon chinese cooking wine
- 100 g (optional, use any wine you have and save some to drink whilst cooking)
Put ginger, garlic and spring onions in TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds, speed 6.
Scrape down and add sesame oil, cook for 3 minutes, varoma, speed soft .
While this is cooking I get a small bowl and add the soy sauces, sugar, chinese cooking wine ready for the next step
Add sauces and diced pork and cook on varoma temp for 15 minutes, reverse , speed soft
After the 15 minutes cooking time add 100g (or 1 MC full) of wine and cornflour if you would like a thick sauce at the end. If you don't add the cornflour you will have a runnier sauce which is quite nice with rice anyhow.
Cook for a further 30 minutes, 100c, reverse , speed soft
Remove and place in Thermoserver to keep warm if you wish to steam some rice and vegetables to go with it.
If I am steaming rice afterwards, I don't wash the bowl...I simply add the 1000g of water to the bowl to incorporate the flavour of the pork and sauce into the cooking water.
