Chinese 5 Spice Blend
2 TBS butter
1 TBS Hoisin sauce
1 TBS teriyaki sauce
Water as necessary
Cut the pork belly into pieces approximately 1 inch long.
Season the pork belly generously with the Chinese 5 Spice Blend.
Heat a skillet over high heat and melt the butter.
Add the seasoned pork belly to the skillet and reduce heat to med-high.
Stir occasionally for approximately 10 minutes until the pork belly is browned and starting to crisp. Note: don’t let it crisp completely…we’re not making bacon! You want it just starting to crisp on the edge.
Once the pork belly has browned add the hoisin and teriyaki sauce to the skillet.
Stir to combine, lower the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
If the sauce gets too thick you can add a little water to thin it just a bit!
Add on top of some fries with cheese and sour cream and enjoy!
