Hakka Braised Fermented Pork with black fungus

Even we are not a Hakka people, but we like to eat this popular Hakka dish. This dish is easy to cook but just need longer time to braise it. If you dont want to braise, just eat the deep fried Hakka meat, also a good choice.

Recipe to share

Marinate Pork belly with:-
1. red fermented bean curd
2. five-spice powder
3. pepper
4. light soy sauce
5. dark soy sauce (for coloring)
6. sugar
7. shao xing wine
8. sesame oil


black fungus (soak first)
red fermented bean curd
bean sauce (Tau chu)

1. Marinate pork belly for few hours, coat with egg and flour, deep fried till golden brown and set aside.
2. Saute garlic, put in red fermented bean curd and bean sauce, then add in black fungus.
3. Add in enough water and fried pork meat, bring to boil, lower the heat, continue simmer for 45mins or until meat is tender, tasted with salt and sugar.
4. Dish out and serve.
** This dish taste even better if keep it overnight....

Bakeling, will not cook this too often, tend to eat a lot of rice, getting fat lor.

Colin, this is my husband favorite, he even asked me to keep some and left in fridge for overnight, taste even better.

Emile, The scones would be delicious with raisins instead of the cranberries. What a great idea =).
