Hi! Welcome to Sandy’s Kitchen! New Food for A New Mood! If you’ve been in Taiwan, you may know this authentic dish 卤肉饭 or Braised Pork Rice. The ingredients are very simple about 1 and half lbs of pork belly 3 shallots cooking wine, soy sauce and white sugar First, we need to cut the pork belly into the size of a pinky finger. Once it’s done, move them to a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of cooking wine and 1 teaspoon of sugar to marinate the pork I highly recommend to marinate pork belly in the refrigerator for 12 hours or overnight Because soy sauce can make the meat even more tender overnight Also, the longer the marination time the more fragrant the meat will be. On the next day, take out the marinated pork from the refrigerator and let it sit aside when we do the next step. Shred 3 shallots at first Cut every slice as the same uniform thickness as possible. Use a wok, turn on the heat to high. Once the wok is warm, add vegetable oil or any other kinds of oil then turn down the heat to LOW quickly. Add shredded shallots Note, the oil should be able to cover the top of shallots. If it can not, add more oil then. Now just keep frying the shallots until it turns to nice golden brown. And please keep in mind to keep low to medium heat for the whole time, because the shallots are very easy to burn. About 20 to 25 minutes later, the shallots are done. Pour into a strainer to filter out oil. Wow~ Look at how crispy they are! Now let’s boil a pot of water for later on. For the next step, you can use the same wok, or like what I did, use a pot. Turn on the heat to high, add about half tablespoon of the filtered oil and the marinated pork. Keep frying until the pork gets smaller and turns to nice golden brown. Then add 2 tablespoons of cooking wine, 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of sugar, stir for few seconds. After that, add the crispy shallots. do you remember that we boiled a pot of water? It’s time to pour the hot water into the pot to cover the top of all ingredients. Turn down the heat to low and cover the pot. It needs about 1 and half hour for slow cooking. When the pork is almost done, let’s prepare some side dishes for it. I have 2 baby bok choy, put them into the boiling water for 20 to 30 seconds then take them out. You can add some salt to preserve the green color of vegetables. Crack 1 egg into a bowl. Go back to the boiling water, use a spoon to stir the water for few seconds. Pour the egg and let it sit for 1 minute to get a runny egg. Go back to the pork, remove the lid. Turn up the heat to high, continue to stir-fry quickly, until the sauce is thick and absorbed. Look, the pork is done! To plate the dish, put some rice into a serving bowl, add stewed pork, baby bok choy and runny egg on the top. WOW~~ it’s so pretty! Oh my god, this is so good, so delicious! Look at how juicy and tender the pork is. If you want to impress your friends or family, this is one recipe that will definitely impress! Thanks for watching.
