In the Kitchen: Chinese Braised Pork Belly

.: December 03, 2013 :.

It's pork, it's fatty and it's delicious. And did I mention how easy it is to make this? Fred's mom made this dish and we both liked it, so I browsed for the  recipe online. Looking at the recipe, I was quite apprehensive about using the cinnamon stick and star anise as the ingredients. I've never cooked with them before and they seem to be for an advanced cook. Nevertheless, I followed the recipe and glad it tasted delish. I only used two star anises though instead of three and used a rather small cinnamon stick so the dish won't smell as strong. And since I didn't have dried cloves, I left out those as well.
