This Chinese Braised Pork Belly is known as Dong Po Rou 东坡肉, which is said to be created by Su Dongpo when he was banished to Hangzhou. Traditionally this dish is made by pan-frying the pork belly first then the pork is braised over low heat. However, you know we love to simplify methods without compromising the taste so we took away the pan-frying part and went straight to braising immediately after the pork is blanched. No worries – this doesn’t affect the taste of the dish. We hope you will find this simplified method useful in your daily cooking. Please try it and we hope you will go mmm like we did. 🙂
See the ingredient list below for your easy reference.
Hope you can recreate this yummy dish in the comfort of your home. Happy cooking!
