Loved it, was a bit worried three hours in, looked awful! But turned out great.. I cooked for six hours, 4 high, 2 low. Used minced garlic and ginger as didn’t have fresh, and chili flakes also instead of fresh, (used what I had) I thought too much liquid, so will not put so much stock in next time, corn flour was added in the last hour.. Was so tasty!! Served with continental fried rice.. Beautiful!

Absolutely delicious πŸ‘ŒπŸ€€ we substituted the rice wine for sherry which made it very sweet , we served it with stir fry veggies and noodles

Don’t know where my old review went. We found we prefer the marinade on pork chops or roast or ribs and chicken as the skin from pork belly went rather hard and have been halfing the marinade when putting it on ribs. Definite favourite in our house have it pretty much every week 😊

Yesterday I made the Sticky Chinese pork belly and it was delicious! The sauce was very runny, but the flavour was perfect. I made coconut rice to serve with it. Would definitely recommend this recipe for anyone looking for a nicely flavoured semi spicy pork recipe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hi Paula. If you cannot find Rice Wine in your supermarket you could try Pale Dry Sherry instead.

Is there anything other than rice wine you can use?

I, too, also found the pork belly too fatty, I use spare ribs chopped up into thirds.
I cooked on high for 2 hrs then brief grill in hot over, add slight colour.
And even thickening sauce in saucepan and cornflour, was still runny.
Was amazing, new family fav, have had it several times now.

Hi would i be able to cook this on high for 2 hrs would it still cook the same??

Can you make this using pork chops?

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 ?
Rated ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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

Will definitely have again πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.
