Ingredients:

1,5kg Pork belly, rind removed

1 Cup (250ml) chicken stock

1/2 Cup (125ml) soy sauce

1/2 Cup (125ml) dry sherry

3 Star anise

5cm Knob ginger, sliced

5 Garlic cloves, crushed

1/4 Cup (60ml) brown sugar

SALSA:

1 Bunch spring onions, chopped

1 Red chilli, finely chopped

Large handful coriander, chopped

Juice of 1 lime and extra for serving

Salt and milled pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 160C.

Pop the pork belly into a roasting pan.

Mix chicken stock, soy sauce, star anise, ginger, garlic and brown sugar together and pour over pork.

Cover with foil and braise for 3-4 hours or until the pork is tender.

Remove pork from braising liquid.

Cover pork with a baking sheet and weigh down with cans for about 2 hours to press pork and set fat.

This makes it easier to slice into neat cubes.

To serve, cube meat. Cook braising liquid to reduce to a thick sauce.

Toss pork cubes into sauce to glaze and heat through.

Pop onto a serving platter, pierce with a bamboo skewer and top with salsa.

To make the salsa: mix spring onion, chilli, coriander and lime juice and season.

Serve with fresh lime

Makes about 30 cubes
