Braised Pork with Chinese Mushrooms May 30, 2007

Posted by Angeleyes in Braise, Meat, Non-Halal.

Another braised dish for the table! 🙂

Yeah, sometimes when I get hyped up with one style of cooking, I will do it over and over again just to test out the different taste using the same style but different ingredients.



  • 300-400g Pork Belly (Not too fatty ones cut into small chunks)
  • 5-6pcs Dried Chinese mushrooms (pre-soaked)
  • 4-5 cloves Garlic (chopped)
  • 2tsp Bean paste (Tau-chu)
  • 1tsp Dark soy sauce
  • Some peppercorns (crushed)
  • 1/2 Cup Water (more if you want more sauce)
  • 1tbsp Glutinous rice wine


  1. Heat up a medium saucepan with a little oil, saute the chopped garlic till fragrant.
  2. Pour in the pork belly chunks and stir till half cooked, add in the dark soy sauce, stir and add in the mushrooms (cut into halves) and crushed peppercorns then continue to stir for a while.
  3. Add in the bean paste, stir and add in the water, stir and simmer for 25-30 minutes till meat is tender.
  4. If you have glutinous rice wine, add in before serving.
