Simple Fried Char Siew (BBQ Pork Belly) Recipe

Stop work, stop work, lunch time liao! Gonna eat this simple fried char siew for lunch! he he he!

Although fried Char Siew is not as aromatic as BBQ Char Siew, my kids still love it very much; errrr.....daddy and mummy too! LOL! In order to make good char siew, you must use the pork belly meat which have a well balanced portions of fats and lean meat. I marinated this char siew overnight so that it will be tastier.
Here is my simple fried char siew recipe....

Ingredients
Pork Belly, 1 strip
Fish Sauce, 1 teaspoon
Five spice powder, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Sugar, 3 tablespoons
Light Soya sauce, 2 tablespoons
Corn Flour, 2 teaspoons
Chinese cooking wine, 1 tablespoon
Hoi sin sauce, (optional), 1 teaspoon

Marinade the pork belly with all the ingredients overnight. Heat up wok (better use non-stick) and add in oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot, put in the marinated pork belly. Turn the heat to medium so that the sugar in the marinade would not burn. Fry until the pork belly turned golden brown and a little burnt.

Use the left over marinate to make the sauce by cooking it over slow fire. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat. Rub the fried char siew with the sauce. Cut the char siew into bite sizes and serve.
