Whenever I get the chance to hop in to any Chinese restaurant , I would always like to try their version of braised pork belly. So far , none of it has really capture my interest. My baby Ryan-Jay which is my latest smart creation( heehee .... ) is having sore throat and flu. I wanted to prepare a quick meal for my mom before sending Ryan to the clinic. After a while of thinking , something has remind me of the Braised Pork Belly that mom once prepared for my dinner years back when I was still a little girl with my 2 little " to chang " ......
Yummy .... my all time favourite ( without the fats ) .... with the thicken gravy ( i am not a fans of cornstarch so I don't use any ). Definitely will make the crowds speechless with the " near to perfection " taste .  Till you try it out yourself , you will know what I mean .... heehee.......


1 strip      Pork Belly ( Fa Lam Yuk/ Normally ready cut into long strips  )
3 cloves   Garlic ( wash and pat dry )
4 tbsp      Dark Soya Sauce
2 tbsp      Light Soya Sauce
1 pc        Rock Sugar ( small piece will do / about the size of 1 -2 cm )
1 tbsp     Cooking Oil
               Water ( enough to cover the pork belly )


  • Wash and pat dry pork belly . Cut into chunks about 1/2 cm thick strips
  • Heat up oil in a work over medium high heat. 
  • Add in pork strip and stir fry till oil turns clear ( oil turns clear when pork strips turns dry ) 
  • Add in garlic cloves and stir fry for another minute , then turn to medium heat. Stir in dark soya sauce and light soya sauce . Stir fry for another minute till the sauce starts to bubble . 
  • Add in water enough to cover 3/4 of the pork . Stir to mix well. Once boil turn to low heat and add in rock sugar . Cover with lid ( do not cover tight leave a 2 cm gap ) and simmer over low heat. 
  • Stir every 3-5 minutes . Once gravy turn sticky and and turn off the heat and cover with lid for another 2 minutes before serving . 
  • Your Braised Pork Belly in Soya Sauce is ready to be served . Enjoy your meal. Best eaten with chili padi and chopped garlic dipping sauce . ( chop garlic and chili padi , add in soya sauce ) 

Simple yet tasty dish. Take my words , you will never regret trying this out. It will definitely makes you remember it ..... Thanx mummy for giving me this precious long lost recipe. 

Tips :  Adjust the rock sugar according to your own preference . Some like it salty sweet , some don't . So be smart to adjust to your own liking. I bought the rock sugar which has been cut to small pieces . I like it salty sweet so I will normally use 2 pcs of the ready cut small pieces of rock sugar. Adjust the amount of soya sauce to your own taste. Happy cooking ... ;)
