Easy Pork Belly Stir-Fry with Asian Greens

Prep time 10 minutes Cook time 10 minutes

Serves 4 people

While pork belly is traditionally slow-roasted until it is meltingly tender, when cooked quickly and paired with a sweet glaze it retains juiciness, and has a mellow, delicious flavour. The real trick is to not overcook it, thereby preventing the meat from drying out. For stir-frying, 2cm cubes is the largest size that should be used. Fine slice of 2cm side strips works even better.
