  • 1/2 kilo (or 500 grams) pork belly, without skin and bone
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 stalks spring onions, sliced thinly (use only the light part and save some for garnish)
  • 1 to 2 chilies
  • 1 to 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tsp sea salt (or salt flakes)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Slice the pork belly into thin squares. Keeping them thin is the key to cooking the meat quickly. 

  2. Turn the stove into medium high and heat up a pan. Once ready, pour the sesame oil and add the sliced pork belly in the pan. Fry them until they are browned and cooked. Take the cooked pork belly out of the pan and set them aside.

  3. Pour out the oil from the pan and leave just enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Turn the heat down to low. 
  4. Add the garlic, chilies and spring onions and cook until fragrant. Turn the heat up and add the cooked pork belly slices, salt and the pepper. Stir to combine evenly.

  5. Take off the heat and transfer in a plate to serve. Garnish with more spring onions, if desired.
