Braised Pork Belly with Cabbage

I find that it is better to cook this dish and serve it in 2 ways.  That is to divide the braised pork belly into 2 portions.  One with just the pork belly and the other portion served with fried cabbage.  The braised pork belly looks simple enough but it is tasty especially when you use good light soy sauce. For the braised pork belly, I used Kikkoman light soy sauce.  It was so fragrant while the meat is braising.  Of course, it tasted good too.

Reminds me of what my mum used to cook when I was still staying with her. Simple but delicious home cooked food is still the best!

Hi Phong Hong, it's pricey but tasted really good. Simply use to braise this pork belly, it's tasty and very aromatic.

Hi Cheryl, surprisingly most people love pork belly to other cuts. It's good part to cook by braising. Meat and sauce are that delicious.

Hi Miss B, your are right. When I was young, my mum use to fry cabbage then top up with crispy pan fried soy sauce meat strips/slices. Those days, we can eat a big plate of rice with just this dish.

Hi Joyce, health conscious or is it that there are too many dishes to cook, hehehe!. I like cooking meat dishes which taste better after resting. This dish is good, has protein and fibre.
