Keto-Friendly Braised Pork-Belly
This Keto-Friendly Braised Pork-Belly is a low-sugar variation on the classic Dong Po Pork. A richer spice blend is used in lieu of the missing sweetness.
Black Cardamom, Galanga, Garlic, Ginger, Pork Belly, Rice Wine, Soy Sauce
as one dish in a Chinese meal
Pork Belly slab with rind;
peeled and slightly crushed;
large slices of fresh Ginger;
pods Black Cardamom;
dried Red Chilli Peppers;
small dried Scallop
Rice Wine or Sherry;
Cornstarch for thickening.
Trim the Pork-Belly slab and cut it into 2-inch squares, preserving the rind.
Put the Pork in a pot with all the ingredients except the cornstarch and add water to cover. Simmer at low heat for two hours or so until the pork rind is tender.
Remove the Pork from the pot and strain the braising medium, skimming off any excess fat.
Finally, restore the sauce to its original volume with water and reheat in a pot, thickening it, if desired, with a cornstarch slurry made with one tablespoon of starch for each cup of sauce.
Add the pork back into the sauce to reheat, then serve.
