Sometimes it is difficult to buy the Chinese food that I crave for. So this year, I challenged myself to try cooking more Asian food. I am an amateur at cooking but am keen to learn. I took this recipe from Rasa Malaysian. I was so pleased with the results! Click here to see her recipe.
I bought the pork belly via the butcher as I could tell them the size of the pork I needed. The bigger the better as it shrinks quite a lot.
The rest of the ingredients can be found in any supermarkets, like salt, garlic and five spice powder. I love how simple this roast pork dish is. There are only 4 ingredients. I had added fresh garlic clove and chopped garlic on a separate occasion and I found it is not necessary. There’s no discernible difference to the taste. I do find added salt help to make the skin very crispy and tasty.
Rather than me copying her recipe here, please click the link and have a look. I will show you some of the photos of the cooking process though.
This is how I arranged a pan on the bottom 1/3 of the oven rack and filled with water.
