I bought some Pork Belly strips from Aldi that have been sat in the freezer, so time to ‘Fakeaway’ them up.

I start by cutting them in half then into a pan with a litre of chicken or veg stock, add a thumb size piece of grated ginger and 2 fat cloves of grated garlic, add a tablespoon of sugar (I have used honey) and a splash of rice wine, I used vermouth as no rice wine 🙃

This can be bought to the boil, then turned down to a slow simmer for 2 hours. When done, drain the Pork, and cut into bite size pieces – you can keep,the stock, I freeze it for a soup base 👍

Into a separate bowl add 3 tablespoons of dark soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, a thumbsize piece of grated ginger, a clove of grated garlic and as much Chilli as you can handle 😉 Give it a good stir.

Into a frying pan add a little veg oil and fry the Pork till golden and crispy.

Add the Soy mix and coat the Pork.  This will caramelise, please be careful this will be SO HOT …..  I have added some chopped spring onion at the end just for texture and a colour contrast.

In a separate pan, I stir fried some Red Pepper, spring onion, Home grown courgette and Mushroom.

For me I stirfry Pak Choi halved lengthways with some sliced red Pepper and spring onion – this is fried in a little veg oil then as the veg starts to wilt add a couple of teaspoons of water to create steam – a shake of soy sauce – done 😋
