Szechuan Pork - A savory, luxurious pork belly recipe that is ready in a flash! #chinesefood #asianrecipe #porkrecipe #stirfry | Tiger USA

AN EASY SZECHUAN PORK BELLY RECIPE

In this day and age, it’s sometimes easier to order the foods we love online or over the phone. And that’s because we’re only a click away from having delicious and exotic dishes delivered to our front doors.

The trade off of this ease is often at the cost of using high quality ingredients – and being able to tailor your dinner to your family’s specific tastes and preferences.

For this Chinese pork recipe, we’ve jettisoned the traditional mouth numbing Szechuan peppercorns in favor of using doubanjiang (a fiery chili bean sauce) and tianmianjiang (a sweet bean sauce) to bring the sweet heat to this Szechuan recipe.

Leeks and bell peppers deliver a healthy, verdant pop of color and flavor. And garlic, ginger and sesame oil impart a fresh, nutty and complex bouquet to the dish.

The result is a savory, luxurious pork belly recipe that is ready in a flash.

Bonus: you can keep the wok in the cabinet for this one. We’ll be using a rice cooker for the entire thing!

 

HOW TO MAKE SZECHUAN STYLE PORK IN YOUR RICE COOKER

For this Szechuan pork recipe, we’ll be cooking it along with the rice at the same time – in the same multicooker!

You see, your Tiger rice cooker comes equipped with a Tacook cooking plate that uses the steam generated from the cooking of the rice to simultaneously cook your meat and vegetables.

Simply place your rinsed rice and water into the inner pot of your rice cooker. Then load all the ingredients for the Szechuan pork in the Tacook cooking plate. Place both inside your rice cooker – and select the Synchro-Cooking setting. That’s it.

Hey… we told you it was easy!

And it’s so delicious, your family might just think you ordered it from your favorite Chinese restaurant.

Don’t worry, we won’t tell on you, chef!

But we’ve got a Szechuan pork recipe that you can make in a flash… And, we promise, it’s better than takeout!
