Braised pork belly recipe

A DELICIOUS BRAISED PORK BELLY RECIPE

This melt in your mouth pork belly recipe is loosely based on a Chinese braised pork dish called hong shao rou – 红烧肉.

In that delicious recipe, pork belly is cooked in a mixture ginger, garlic, sugar, star anise, chili peppers and wine until the meat is fall-apart-soft. It’s delicious!

And while that dish also runs some pretty significant parallels to a Taiwanese lu rou fan, we’ve simplified this rice cooker braised pork belly recipe a bit to keep the ingredients list on the manageable side of things.

But don’t worry! We didn’t sacrifice any of the deep and soulful flavor when it comes to this easy pork belly recipe. On the contrary – it’s absolute dynamite in the seasoning department.

And it’s so easy to make, you’ll be shocked that this hearty bit of meat perfection came from your humble rice cooker!

 

HOW TO COOK PORK BELLY IN A RICE COOKER

Now, we probably don’t need to tell you that your Tiger rice cooker is capable of doing way more in the kitchen that simply making perfect rice. 

And whether it’s a hearty vegetarian Mexican chili or these impossibly savory BBQ pulled pork sliders, the Slow Cook function on your Tiger multicooker can turn out absolute deliciousness with the simple press of a button.

Hey, we love keeping it easy at dinnertime – while still eating as well as someone who literally spent hours working away in the kitchen.

So it stands to reason that – for this braised pork belly recipe – you simply need to load your ginger, garlic, seared pork belly and spices into the inner pot of your rice cooker. 

Slow cook for 70 minutes while you work on other elements of your dinner. Or, heck, kick your feet up with a glass of wine and a good book. You deserve it!

Bon appetit 🍲😋
