Dark Soy Sauce Pork Belly

This is my mom's favorite dish when she does cooking at home. ( Well, my mom doesn't cook much, LOL ) Simple, easy to cook and tastes good.

One of my regular pork dishes when I ran out of ideas on what to cook for dinner. :)

Ingredients :

250g pork belly - sliced thin
3 cloves shallot - lightly bruised
2 cloves garlic - lightly bruised
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 cup water
2 tbsp oil

Marinate :
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
dash of pepper
1 tsp oyster sauce

Marinate pork belly for at least 1/2 hour.

Preheat wok with oil and saute garlic and shallots till fragrant.

Add in pork and stir fry till pork changes colour.
Stir fry for another 5 minutes.

Add in water and bring to boil.

Cover wok, lower heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
Then, add soy sauce, sugar and dark soy sauce and mix till well combined.

Cover wok and simmer for another 5 minutes or till gravy is thick.

Dish up and serve with rice.
