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 heaven....you 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 secret....be 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.
