Twice-Cooked, Sticky Pork Belly Salad

Description: Twice-cooked, sticky pork belly salad

Take your salad up to notch by topping it with decadent pork belly cubes laced with the flavors of the wonderful chicken broth.

Serves 4  Prep time 20 minutes  Cooking time 3 hours, 10 minutes

·         1 kilo boneless pork belly

·         1 recipe basic master stock

·         Vegetable oil for deep-frying

·         2 tablespoons brown sugar

·         Lime wedges, to serve

For the salad

·         1/4 Chinese cabbage, sliced finely

·         1 cup bean sprouts, trimmed

·         1 bunch baby radish, trimmed and sliced finely

·         1 bunch cilantro, leaves picked

·         1/2 bunch mint, leaves picked

·         Lime wedges, to serve


1.    Place pork in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Pour stock over to cover. Simmer gently, covered, for 2 to 3 hours or until pork is tender.

2.    Remove pork, then strain and reserve master stock. Pat pork dry with paper towels.

3.    Cut pork into 1-inch cubes. Heat oil in a wok or deep-frying pan on high heat until surface shimmers. Deep-fry pork in batches, 2 to 3 minutes each or until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels.

4.    Add sugar and 1 cup reserved stock to wok. Simmer, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced by half. Return pork to wok, tossing.

5.    Assemble the salad: In a bowl, toss all ingredients together. Place pork on salad and drizzle extra sauce over. Serve hot with lime wedges on the side, if desired.


If you have time, place the poached pork, uncovered, in the fridge overnight. It will dry out the skin for a crisper result.
