Pork Belly Shreds with Minced Garlic and Black Sauce

(o_O)!  Pork belly again!  Yes, again!  What to do, MIL gave us a big long stripe of it and I gotta find all ways to consume it fast, after all these dishes I cooked, I still have another portion in the freezer!

This was served last nite, it was a cold dish, or an appetizer, go well with rice too!  I got the recipe from a book with the name of " The Pork Belly", hehehe, I bought it cos hubby really love pork belly, (>_o)

Ok, here is the recipe...


400g   pork belly with skin
50g     chopped garlic
4 tbsp pre-mixed flavored soy sauce
1 tsp    sesame oil

Pre-mixed flavored soy sauce ingredients:

50ml    light soy sauce
1           star anise
1           "cekur"/"sha jiang" (I have no idea what is this, used normal ginger only)
20g      rock sugar
1/2 tsp chicken stock granule
50ml    water


  1. Combine the pre-mixed flavored soy sauce ingredients, bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Cook pork belly into boiling water for 20 minutes until cooked throughly.  Remove, soak into cool water for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the pork belly, drain well, cut into thinly slices, then finely shredded, arrange onto a serving platter.  Lastly, add in chopped garlic, spoon in pre-mixed soy sauce and sesame oil on top, mix well.  Serve at once.
If u see the photo clearly, I'd placed a block of chilled soft tofu underneath the pork, it go very well with the sauce too.

Little girl's plate of dinner, the pork belly and tofu without garlic, fried long beans and rice.

After having pork belly for 3 meals in a roll, we were so overdosed of pork, gotta stop eating meat for a while :p
