Big hunks of pork belly glazed in a soy-based sauce using the Chinese technique of red-cooking. The resulting meat is both crispy and luxuriously soft with a delicious salty-sweet sauce. 

It’s surprisingly easy, but impressive, making it a good dish to serve company. All the work happens before people show up – allowing you to actually hang out with your friends. Just make sure no one’s on a diet, since pork belly is unsmoked bacon and the joy is in the decadence. Mmmmmmm…
