DIY - Three Cups Pork Belly

Ops, this is a dated post once again. A dish I shared on the last day of 2011. Everyone liked this very much, I like it too. Originated from the famous Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken dish, I modified it with pork belly instead. Oh dear, it taste even much better (hehe, self praised). Seriously, I initially thought of pork rib, as originally served by Fong Lye at Jalan Imbi (heard of it, but never try either). I put off that idea as it is not easy to share dishes like pork ribs at a buffet styled potluck dinner.

Here comes my Three Cups Pork Belly, the essential ingredient has been the rice wine and Thai Sweet Basil leaves.

Ingredient :-
chopped garlic 4-5 cloves, sliced ginger, pork belly sliced in dices, Thai Basil leaves

Marinate :-
Pork belly with little soy sauce to taste, add cooking rice wine

Sauce :-
Sesame oil, barley malt (麥芽糖), soy sauce, dark soy sauce, pepper, water to dilute, cooking rice wine

  1. Mix sauce ingredient in a bowl, set a side
  2. Stir chopped garlic in sesame oil, stir on ginger and few cloves of Basil leaves
  3. Add marinated pork belly and continue stir till cooked
  4. Add bowl of sauce, adjust sauce according to your like; add more cloves of Basil leaves
  5. Simmer for 15minutes
  6. Ready to serve
