Sweet Soy Sauce Pork Belly

Ingredients:

  • One Bottle Superior Light Soy Sauce, 生抽王  (Brand: Pearl River Bridge), 16.9 fl. oz
  • One Bag Chinese Brown Sugar (In rectangular shapes, called Brown Candy)
  • 1.5 lbs. Fatty Pork Belly,五花肉
  • Ginger (just a few)
  • Three Garlic Cloves
  • One Dried Tangerine Peel

Special Notes:

  • For less, you may use ½ bottle of Superior Light Soy Sauce and ½ bag of Chinese Brown Sugar instead.
  • Do not microwave this to re-heat, the meat can get dry and hard. I would suggest simmering it on low again or put a semi-wet paper towel on top before microwaving.

Directions:

  • Slice the Ginger, peel the Garlic and Soak the Dried Tangerine Peel

  • Scrape the skin of the Fatty Pork
  • Scrape the inside of the Dried Tangerine Peel

  • In a pot, boil the Superior Light Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar, Ginger, Garlic Cloves and Tangerine Peel

  • Once it boils and sugars melt, put Fatty Pork Belly into pot and turn heat down to low
  • Cover, put chopsticks on the the side to hold up the cover so it doesn’t simmer out
  • Simmer at low for 1 hour and just check to see if meat is tender
