Back by popular demand, we are bringing you this all time favourite once again at Naturally Chinese. This dish holds a special place for the onset of Autumn. For those who enjoy a hearty meal, this Chinese crispy pork belly is a treat to discover in every morsel. And it has been common practice for patrons to mop up all those succulent bits of crackling that make this dish special.
The Pork Belly being a tender meat offers the chance to enjoy the sweet and savoury flavour delicately and slowly cooked over a slow fire. Its succulent taste stems from a mix of Chinese spices, sherry, citrus and preserved vegetables. It’s a dish to behold.
At Naturally Chinese, we recommend this dish with a bowl of steamed rice and a green vegetable side dish. And it pairs very well with our house red wine or full bodied Shiraz. It can easily be enjoyed by two for a special occasion. However, if it most likely catches your fancy during this colder time of year, it makes a great leftover for the next day still remaining juicy and tender. We will be bringing you some more of our specials in the coming posts. Until then, stay warm, hydrated and well nourished.
