    Thai Style Stewed Pork Belly

    Stewed Pork Belly 6

    I’ve probably made soy sauce stew pork a gazillion times when I was living in Aussie. That was my go-to recipe when I want comforting Asian food that reminds me of eating at home. I always thought that will forever remain my favourite stewed pork recipe. But all that changed when I went to bangkok with a friend, and she ordered a bowl of stewed pork belly to share. 

    Oh mah goodness! The spices made the stew sooooooo much better! So much warmer in terms of flavour, and so much more comforting. 

    My littlest one (Peighton) has claimed this to be her favourite pork dish. She can’t stop asking for more meat, and was slurping down her gravy. Our plates were clean that night, not a one piece of pork was left, and there I was hoping there will be leftovers for my lunch the next day! Lol!
