Braised Pork Belly With Soya Sauce, Garlic And Eggs

Braised Pork Belly With Soya Sauce,
Garlic And Eggs
My mother loves to cook this dish for us during my younger days until now.
Now I am cooking this dish for my family.  I think this dish has been
with us for more than 49 years (if plus my mother's younger
days, then it will be more than 100 years.... LOL).  This dish is very flavourful 
full of soya sauce and garlic and when you eat together with those eggs, 
it just make in even wanted to eat more rice.
I remember one of my dear colleagues taught me one dish similar to this dish 
but without egg.   I concluded both dishes are delicious also.

My dear mother with my dear daughter.  This photo taken at Baskin Robbins
Ice Cream in Pavilion last two weeks ago.  My dear mother is 76 years old.  
Her feature does not look like one old  hag lady, am I right?  
She is still kuat (strong).  Her a vegetarian.
She is a vegetarian more than half of her age.

290g Pork Belly (Wash, drain and cut into slices with skin intact).
2 bulb of Garlic / 1 1/2 tablespoons of Caster Sugar
2 tablespoons of Cooking Oil / 3 tablespoons of Soya Sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons of Dark Soya Sauce / 1/2 tablespoon of Black Pepper
1 cup of Water

Heat up your pot with 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.

Add in the caster sugar and once it is caramalised.

Add in the slice pork belly and garlic.  Stir until all the oil and sugar
coated all the pork belly.

Add in the soya sauce, dark soya sauce and water.

Let it boil with high fire until boil and then lower the fire to medium.

Simmer it for 10 minutes or until the sauce left 1/2 cup.
(Note : The preference is yours if you prefer more sauce or little sauce.
To me, I wanted the sauce to be thicker.  If your family prefer more sauce,
by all means, add more water.)  Remember to taste it.
Add in the black pepper and stir until combined.
Switch off the fire.

Lastly, add in the hard boiled egg and stir until the sauce coated the eggs.

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!

This dish was finished by my dear family.  Even the rice and sauce are all gone
together with other dishes that I cooked (Steamed Fish and Stir Fried Vegetable).
Don't be alarmed, it is more than the above picture.  
This dish is enough for four people.

I am submitting this to the Little Thumps Up "Egg" event organized by

Happy Cooking and I hope you and your family will like this dish.

My fav too since young.
Your mum and your daughter, both are looking good. I adore pork belly but don't cook at home because my other half is pork free. But when I am out with my friends, all the way to pork belly.

I am so tempted at the delicious pork belly you have shared.

Hi Amy, love this dish very much! We also cook a similar dish like this at home - pork belly with boiled eggs. YUMMY! I will surely ask for extra rice. Both your mum and daughter looks good, where is photo of Amy? :)

Hi Amy,

You are right that your daughter looks a little like your mum. Both of them look great and I can tell that you are very proud of them :D

Your mum being a vegetarian? I wish to be vegetarian too... but I find it quite hard to become a strict vegetarian seeing temptations like your delicious braised pork belly with eggs and also other dishes everywhere... I think I have to toughen up my thought *sign* I reckon your mum must be a very strong lady :D
