Chinese Braised Pork with Preserved Plum

70

Some unique homemade pork recipes make special use of preserved plums as a spice. The plums can largely reduce the greasiness of the pork belly, and adds to it a charming sweet and sour flavour. The plums also absorb a lot of meat juice and become very tasty too! (This original homemade recipe is not to be reprinted in fulltext.

6
18 oz. pork belly
1 oz. preserved plum (about 10-15 pieces; available in Asian food shops)
1/8 oz. ginger
2 heads star anises
3 heads dry red chilies
3 T. vinegar
3 T. soy sauce (light)
3 T. cooking wine
5 T. crystal sugar
Cut the pork into coarse cubes. Boil a pot of water and blanch the pork in it, until the water comes to the boil again. Cool in blanched pork in cold water and drain. Add into 8 oz. water in a wok the pork and all the other ingredients. When the water comes to the boil again, turn to low heat and cover, braise for 1 to 1.5 hours. When the Pork is nearly well done, i.e. when it turns tender and can be easily penetrated with chopsticks, uncover and turn to strong heat. Cook until the sauce thickens.
