The Scent of Clay – Original Rural Life in China Rural life – “Hong Shao Rou”
Red braised pork belly Good day, everybody! I’m Qingxiang.(The Scent of Clay) I’m gonna cook some “Hong Shao Rou” (Red braised pork belly) Oops, the blocks are still too big. I’ll give them another cut. Add them in COLD water and bring to a boil spring onions, ginger and cooking wine to eliminate the raw smell of pork. Here’s the pork belly after scalding. Now im gonna transfer them out . Here i got some cold water I steeped the polk blocks in it. Some oil. Add in chopped spring onions, ginger and garlic.
Stir until fragrant. and now the pork belly. Then sauté until the the fat gets out.
(pork becomes slightly brown) Add in some light soy sauce and then some dark soy sauce. Now I’m adding water in. Maybe a little more water, and it’ll be more tender later. Some salt. I don’t use the custer sugar, but some rock sugar here. Now skim off the scum. OK! Liquid is now reduced.
(and it turns thick and syrupy) Transfer them out . Sugar in. Melt the sugar slightly, add the pork and …………. stir. Again, some light soy sauce Now add in a bowl of HOT water. Star anise, Sichuan peppercorn and some salt. Ok! Liquid is now reduced.(Again) Low heat, low heat. Reduce the liquid in the wok on a low heat. When there is not much liquid left, stir lightly until it’s thick and syrupy. OK. The sauce is almost well thickened. I’ll put in some the spring onions, ginger and garlic. and some chili pepper. OK! It’s almost down. Ready to serve soon! 😀 Ladle into 2 plates. Take one to my ma and pa, too. Give them a taste. It’s really appetizing! This is the Hong Shao Rou I made. It’s finished.
