Really enjoyed the taste but not the texture of the belly pork. I will try again using pork shoulder.

I used this recipe tonight but I changed the pork belly for pork shoulder roast and did a pulled version.
I also doubled all the other ingredients so it had plenty of liquid to soak up when pulled as that absorbs a lot.
Served with brown rice and stir fry veg.
Deeeeeeeelish :))
All my children loved it and some even had seconds.
Great flavours and guaranteed to emit smells during cooking that will have your neighbours licking your walls ?

Delicious! I used a roasting piece with no bone and shredded the pork though as I find pork belly too fatty

Very easy to make and serve.
We used a whole piece and it was so tender and sticky, Yum!
Will definitely have again 🙂

We loved this, and yes the sauce was thin (even after I’d attempted to thicken it!) but it did not detract from the yummy-ness. It got an 8/10 in our house so will definitely be making it again.

Loved the flavour but found way too runny so finished off in the oven for 45min after 4 hours in SC, we like a crisp skin.

We loved this, cooked it on low for the 4 hours, then on high for about an hour (last 2 hrs with the tea towel under the lid).
Put the sauce in a pan at the end to reduce with a little corn flour to thicken, added the pork to stir through and served with rice. The pork was melt in your mouth 🙂

It’s nice, not as sweet as I thought it was going to be and a bit runny so I took the meet our and set aside and put the sauce in a pan added more brown sugar and corn flour and stirred it on a high heat for a couple of minutes and poured it back over the meat and served.

A yummy sticky sweet sauce with just a little kick. I used beef ribs instead of pork belly

I quote “by far the best dish youve cooked so far” according to my hubby
I used apple cider vinegar instead of rice wine as that was what I had.
