It’s easy to make pork belly and the best part is you don’t even have to cook it.
This recipe makes about 3 pounds of meat and you’ll need about 2 1/2 cups of marinade.
Here’s how to do it. 1.
Make the marinades: Use a large pot and bring it up to a boil.
Then add the spices, salt, and pepper.
The marinad is going to cook down to about a tablespoon of salt and pepper each.
Add the marinated meat and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
If the marinating isn’t going well, add a little water and let the marination cook for another 10 minutes or so.
The result should be a thick, flavorful sauce that you can mix in with whatever vegetables you want.
Cut the meat: Remove the meat from the pot and set it aside.
In a large skillet, heat the oil and saute the garlic and onion for about 3 minutes.
Add in the pork and sauté for another minute or so, stirring occasionally.
When the pork is cooked, remove it from the pan and set aside.
Cut into the meat chunks: Place the meat pieces into a blender and process until smooth and slightly crumbly.
You want the meat to be quite firm but not soggy.
You can also try using a hand blender.
You don’t have to process them all at once.
Once the meat is smooth and not soggier, add in the chopped cabbage.
Garnish with fresh basil and fresh parsley.
Recipe Notes The recipe below was adapted from a recipe I found on the Food Network’s Food Guide.
The Food Network recommends cutting the pork into 3/4 inch pieces before cooking.
I didn’t have that time.
You’ll need at least 1/4 cup of marinating.
I used 2 1-cup marinaded pieces of meat.
