I made this recently..just wanted to try something new for a change. Surprisingly very good..the meat is very tender..the pork fat layer remains intact..



Ingredients
1 kg pork belly, sometimes called 3 layers pork
4 pcs of dried orange peel
1 jar/bottle of Sweet Plum Sauce(Lee Kum Kee)
200ml water
50g maltose syrup(if not, use Maple syrup)

Soup version
salt to taste for the soup only*


Method:
1. Heat water in the pot till boiling. Add plum sauce, orange peel and maltose syrup. Stir to mix evenly and make sure its bubbly boiling before you turn off the fire.
2. Wash, remove any 'hairs' on the skin of the pork.
3. Place pork on a flat plate/dish with the skin on top, meat faced down.
4. Pour boiling sauce over the pork.
5. Leave it to cool before putting contents into a ziplock bag, tighten the bag.
6. Leave it in the fridge chiller for at least 8 hours.
7. The next day, pour contents, pork and sauce into a large crock pot/slow cooker and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Add 500ml of hot water to it to cook.
8. Scrimp off excess fat that floats to the top of the pot.
9. Add salt to taste the soup.
10. Remove the pork to slice and serve over porridge or noodles.

Notes:
The soup can be re-used again the next time you do this again.
Or can be use as part of the soup base for noodles which I did for mine too.

one of the must have is the slow cooker. In all my years as mother, wife..and house maid.. Smile love I have 3 slow cookers. it does beautiful 'work' on tough meat and makes it very tender and soft and yet still compact.

I cannot live without a slow cooker in my house! grin
