This is a dish where my mum will fix up for us when she cannot think of anything else better to feed us with when we were kids. She knows that we will eat rice by the bowlfuls as this dish is rather sweet and all kids if not most love sweet foods. This is really a no-frill home-cooked dish. I am not sure if you made it with other sorts of meat, the outcome will be the same. It is just the texture of pork is different from chicken and beef. I suppose if some one is game to try it with beef, do let me know the results :)
600g pork belly (uncut)
250g superior dark sauce
250ml of water
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- Heat up the non-stick pot and put in the chopped garlic.
- Stir it a bit and add in the superior dark sauce
- Add in the water and the sugar and turn off the heat.
- Put in the pork belly into the pot and coat the pork with the sauce.
- Leave the pork in the pot for an hour to marinade.
- After 1 hour, heat up the pot and turn the pork around.
- Leave on very low fire and let the pork simmer in the sauce.
- Cook the pork for another hour. Turn it around every now and then to make sure that the pork is cooked evenly.
- Remove the pork and when it is cool enough to be handled, cut it into slices about 1/2 cm thick (or you could have it thicker if you want).
- Serve with piping hot rice would be nice.
