Crispy Chinese Pork Belly

Crispy Chinese Pork Belly Recipe Feature

Imagine slow-cooked pork belly, that’s slightly crispy and crunchy, and full of rich, intense flavours? That’s exactly what my Chinese Pork Belly recipe will give you – and a whole lot more!

This recipe is inspired by the many times I experienced similar dishes back home in Sydney. Yum Cha in China Town was one of my favourites treats to experience with my friends, and remains a fond memory.

Chinese food here in the UK is quite different from what I used to eat back in Sydney, so I try to recreate it as much as possible from my own kitchen. It’s like I’m bringing a little bit of my hometown to Scotland!

Thankfully, Ben loves Chinese food! He especially loves this Chinese pork belly recipe. Who wouldn’t?

The best part of this Chinese pork belly recipe is how all the ingredients come together harmoniously. The ginger and black vinegar cut through the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the Shaoxing wine adds a beautiful richness.

As the fat renders and caramelises this adds a delicious sweetness to the pork and adds the characteristic crunchiness.

In our household, we serve this recipe with a rice bowl of marinated vegies, fried onions, and fresh spring onions.

The fresh vegetables, like carrots and cucumber, really help to lift what could otherwise be quite a rich or heavy meal, and the rice is perfect for soaking up any leftover sauces at the bottom of the pan.

When preparing the pork for this dish, just be careful to slide the pork into even portions, about 1-1.5cm thick. This way it will cook evenly, and create the perfect crunchy texture we’re looking for.
