Directions

How to Make Dongpo Pork Recipe

STEP 01

1. Wash the pork belly as a whole piece. Blanch it whole in boiling water for one minute and drain. This process gets rid of any impurities and also allows you to more easily cut the pork belly into same-size pieces. Cut the pork into  3 inch pieces. You can also make them 2 by 2 inches if you like them smaller. Set aside.

STEP 02

1. In a medium clay pot  or a medium in a regular pot, lay the scallions on the bottom in a thick, even layer. The scallions should cover the entire bottom of the pot. Space the ginger slices evenly over the scallions.

STEP 03

2. Lay the pork belly deep down on ginger.

STEP 04

3. Pour the wine,  soy sauces and rock sugar. Now cover and cook and wait for a boil. As soon as it boils turn down the flame.

STEP 05

4. Turn the pork belly skin-side up in the pot, cover, and let simmer for another 90 minutes. With the heat at the lowest setting, there should be plenty of liquid in the pot to cook the pork throughout the cooking.

STEP 06

5. The cooking takes about 90 minutes. Enjoy the braised pork belly.
