Ingredients

600g (1 lb 5 oz) pork belly, skinless, cut into 3cm (just over 1”) batons

1 tbsp vegetable oil

4 spring onions, cut into 6cm (2.5”) batons

steamed rice, to serve

 

Marinade:

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp Chinese Shaoxing wine

½ tsp bicarb (baking) soda

3 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)

 

Stir-fry sauce:

3 tbsp hoisin sauce

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

Steps

    In a small mixing bowl, combine the pork with the marinade ingredients. Mix well.

  • Step 2

    Place wok on medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil, followed by the pork pieces. Saute the pork for 4-5 minutes, or until they’re crispy and golden in colour. Add in the spring onion and saute for a further 1 minute or until the onion is just tender.

I made this tonight and it was superb. I bought a piece of pork belly, skin on. I took it off in one piece and then crisped in the oven with a touch of 5 spice and crushed it over the top as garish. So yummy.
