Step 1

~To Marinate the pork belly:

* In a large bowl, mix together the rice wine, dark soy sauce, sugar, garlic, hoisin sauce, and five-spice powder.

* Rub the pork belly with the marinade mixture and marinate for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator.

* Preheat the oven to 325°F.

* Hold up the pork for a few seconds to allow excess marinade to drip off, then place the pork in a roasting pan.

* Brush the top with the honey.

* Roast the pork for about 45 minutes, flipping over the pork belly half-way through and brushing honey on the other side.

* The pork is done when the outsides begin to crisp and blacken and the center of the pork belly strip feels firm.

* Remove the pork from oven and let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

* Transfer to a cutting board and cut into thin slices.

* Arrange the slices on a plate and serve.
