  1. Add all the slow cooked pork belly ingredients to a pan (not the glaze ingredients). Bring to the boil, then place a lid on, turn down the heat and simmer for 2 hours.
  2. Turn off the heat and drain the pork. You can reserve the liquid if you like (Perfect for a Thai or Chinese noodle soup).
  3. Chop the pork into bite sized chunks. Add 1 tbsp. of oil in a frying pan, and then mix the remaining glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Heat the oil and add in the pork, salt and pepper, frying on a high heat until the pork starts to turn golden.
