Hi, my friends and visitors to this humble blog, I'm back from holiday and also back to home cooking.  This is an easy, simple yet aromatic and tasty pork belly dish which I cooked. Thick sweet and savoury sauce that is good to serve with steaming hot rice.  The aromatics like lemongrass and ginger bud make this meaty dish yummy, yummy with rice.
This dish taste better after resting and can be cooked ahead of meal time.  Just reheat before serving.  

Recipe Source – adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 60

500 gm pork belly – cut into bite size pieces
3 stalks lemongrass [white part only] – pounded

½ tbsp oil

3 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp palm sugar [gula Melaka]
½ tsp pepper
300 ml water or enough to cover meat
  1. Heat oil in a non-stick wok, sauté pounded lemongrass until aromatic.

Hi Phong Hong, very aromatic pork dish. I think it should be good too with chicken. Allow to rest, the flavour develops, more tastier.

Hi Yen, the pork belly is very tasty when the flavours have infused in them. Every bite of it is yummy-licious.
