Chinese Pork Adobo 1

What I love about this version is that the sauce is thick, sweet and aromatic and  it compliments that burst of fat you get when you bite into a pork belly square. Pork belly is the ideal part to be used in this dish because of it’s high fat content which goes really well with the thick, sweet, aromatic sauce. However, since there is no vegetable accompanying the pork belly, I recommend you serve it with brown rice instead of the usual white rice.
