Taiwanese Braised Pork

Turns out, many of us were channelizing our inner master chefs during the lockdown and I must say my recipe repertoire has certainly expanded, thanks to the myriad Youtube videos that kept popping up in my feed.

It took a pandemic to help me rediscover the joys of home cooking!

I found my zen garden in the kitchen.
Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly

A recipe to share


There you go  an amazing rice bowl that is topped with aromatic, toothsome, caramelized, melt-in-your-mouth pork morsels and a braised hard-boiled egg!

Enjoy!

Looks delicious. We’ve cooked more than we have for years and years and , like you, have also branched out to more new recipes, since we can’t “go out” when we want something different from the usual. It’s actually been fun.

Must admit that we tend to avoid pork belly as it is seen as very fatty. But, Veronica that recipe does look and sound rather yummy. Watch this space.

"The joy of home cooking" is very good.
Thank you for this recipe. I like experiments in the kitchen.
For example, yesterday I made jam from zucchini. Fun and good! :)
All the best and Happy WW, Veronica!

Oh Veronica, you got me crazy now!!! This is a BIG favorite of mine. Last January on my home from Paris, I had a 7 hour layover in Taipei and the first thing I did is went to the basement foodcourt and got myself a bowl of braised pork with rice! I was the only one on the dine area and I surely was making uhmm sounds with every spoonful HAHA Come on! It was a long flight, that was such a treat! And with that, thank you for this recipe, I can give it a try at home :)

Seems delicious!

Suzy said...

Yum! looks tasty. I have gained a few since this lockdown out of boredom.

Keith's Ramblings said...

That looks lovely! I was a chef before retiring, then lost interest in things culinary. But lockdown has reignited my passion for cooking!

Peabea Scribbles said...

So true, but being bored with the lock down, seems I enjoyed too much finding new foods to make. lol

Zina said...

It looks great, but I wonder if I should replace the pork with chicken breast.
Thanks for the recipe, especially since we have been cooking at home for a long time, we avoid restaurant food or ready-made food from the supermarket.

Have a fine day, dear Veronica!

That looks so delicious. I love pork belly but can't eat any pork for now. I just hope I will be able to again in the future.

The plating is very nice Veronica and the food looks delicious.

Lockdown has turned many into chefs like you said & am sure the weight is being maintained too 😂

Have a delicious week ahead!

Natasha said...

OMG! Absolutely lip-smacking delightful!

I have some pork lying in the freezer. Saving the recipe for the weekend. It's just that the girls are vegan and vegetarian, I try to be too mostly, but I don't mind cheating once in a while.;-)
Think the DH and I will dig this dish big time.

Thanks for sharing dearest Veronica.

Have a scrumptious week ahead!

I am still to try the Sambal recipe. Didn't get the right fish yet.

I suspect that many people, having to cook for themselves during the pandemic, have discovered the joy of cooking once again. For others, however, their diet has involved even more processed, prepackaged food, and what a shame that is.
