  • 300400 g (10.5-14 oz) Pork Belly
  • 1 medium onion (sliced)
  • 67 long mild red chilis (chopped)
  • 67  long mild green chilis (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp garlic (sliced)
  • 2 tbsp ginger (peeled and sliced)
  • 2 tbsp Chinese black bean sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 12 tbsp oil


  1. Heat oil in large wok over high heat. Don’t add too much oil as the pork belly fat will render thereby increasing the amount of oil in the stir-fry.
  2. Add whole pork belly fat or skin side down into hot oil.
  3. Cook on that one side until crisp (about 5 min) then flip pork belly and cook on the opposite side for 1-2 min, lightly searing it.
  4. Remove from wok and set aside.
  5. When cool, cut pork belly into thin slices.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together black bean sauce, soy sauce and rice vinegar.  Set aside.
  7. In the remaining wok with the remaining oil, add garlic and ginger slices and cook over medium heat.  Let cook until fragrant (2-3 min), making sure that the oil has picked up the flavor of the ginger and garlic but isn’t burnt.
  8. Increase heat to highest setting and add sliced pork belly.  Continue cooking until meat is thoroughly cooked and is beginning to pick up a crisp brown color.
  9. When pork is thoroughly cooked, add chopped chilis and onions.  Cook on high heat until veg begins to slightly soften (should be around 2-3 min)
  10. Add black bean sauce mix, toss to combine and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes.
  11. Turn off heat and serve with steamed rice.
