Braised Pork Belly

My husband No. 1 favourite! I haven't cook this for him since his medical report came back with a 'star' mark next to his cholesterol some time back.

His recent 2 reports came back without any 'stars' so I thought I indulgent him with this for just this time. My daughter's eyes lit up too when she saw this. No, she doesn't like the fatty pork but the braised eggs. My favourite too. My son only likes the sauce over his rice. ;)

  • 300g Pork Belly, cut into bite size
  • 5 Garlic, lightly smashed with skin intact
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon, Dark Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 400ml Water
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 tablespoon Oil

How to do it:
  1. Heat oil in wok.
  2. Add garlic and stir fry till slightly brown and fragnant.
  3. Add pork belly and stir fry till 75% cooked.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat and continue to simmer for 2 1/2 hours.
  6. Serve with rice.


  1. Yum yum... I love braise pork with kueh chap. :)

    It’s been wonderful knowing you.
    May you be more charming, richer, healthier and happiest this coming new year!!

    Happy year 2009!

  2. Looks lovely! Dropping by to wish you and your family a Blessed New Year!

  3. I always toss in a few eggs when I braise meats. Pork belly is so yummy but I definitely need to wait for special occasions before indulging in it.

    I'm glad to hear your husbands cholesterol is getting better! Happy New Year!

  4. Looks great! I just had this at our New Year's party but now I'm craving it again! :)

  6. EastCoastLife,
    It's really nice knowing you too. May everything good come your way too! :)

    Thank you! You too have a great year!

    I love the eggs but not the meat though. :P I just can't sink my teeth to the fats. :P

    You and my husband can be pals. LOL

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Mommy Gourmet,
    Thank you.

  7. This is one of my family's favor too. I like everything as well as the sauce. If got sauce left, I will keep it for next day and make plain noodles along with sauce, simple but good enough.

  8. Chumpman,
    Yeap! That's what I did too!!
