Ingredients

  • 500

    g pork belly cut into cubes around 2 inches

  • 4

    tablespoons light soy sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons brown sugar, broken if you have large pieces

  • 2

    inches ginger, cut into slices

  • 4

    green onions, 1 finely chopped for garnish and the left into long sections

  • 1

    cup hot water

  • Oil for brushing (optional if you are using iron wok)

Directions

Clean and cut the pork belly into cubes around 2 inches long. Boil a large pot of water, add 2 slices of ginger and 2 green onions, cook the pork belly for around 4 minutes. Transfer out and wash with warm water. Set aside and drain. Heat up wok on medium fire; brush some oil on the bottom. Sautee the pork belly until the surface becomes slightly brown. Transfer the pork cubes out to a pre-heat clay pot with green onion and ginger slices laid in bottle or a plate and leave the oil in. Put the brown sugar in wok to stir fry until all the sugar melts and you can see large bubbles. Keep stirring during the process. Pour around 1 cup of hot water. Mix well! Transfer the sugar mixture to the clay pot with pork belly or return the pork belly into your wok. Add light soy sauce too. Bring all the content to a boiling and then lower the fire to simmer for around 45 minutes with the lid covered. Lift the lid and turn up the fire to thicken the sauce (around 15 minutes). Stop when you see the sauce is boiling strongly with large bubbles and almost thickened. Cool down a little bit and the sauce will fatherly thicken itself. Garnish some chopped green onion before serving.
