Vinegar-braised pork for dinner

Another non-halal food post. ^^

Found this recipe from A table for two while I were browsing around, thinking how should I cook a slab of pork belly that have been in the freezer for a week.

Well, I love vinegar-braised pork trotter but never cook it myself. Since this recipe called for pork belly which I have in hand, might as well I gave it a try. I had all the ingredients except dried chillies and star anise (I seldom use or usually omit). It still tasted good and appetizing!

The recipe did not called for blanch but I did blanched my meat to get rid of the impurities. And I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup as I do not like it too sweet.

Not hard to cook so why don't you give it a try?

I used this caramel sauce brand

Looking good and tasty

Verdict? Yum yum! Great to go with white rice. Although I would like it to be darker and thicker.

I use Knife brand's soy sauce - one of my favs but haven't tried this dark caramel ;)

Great recipe. Just the thing I love. The egg in there is brilliant!

Yum! Yum! I just had that too a couple of days ago. My SIL cooked one big pot for me - in return for the lap cheong fried rice I cooked for her. Barter trade. Hehehehehehe!!!! Very nice!

Good way to finally cook that pork belly in your freezer. All the children like it I assume though Jamie may be too young to eat dishes like this. Is he?

The kids didnt fancy it. The sour vinegar turned them off. Haha.
