A couple months ago, I posted a “Korean Style Pan-fried Pork Belly” recipe and received a lot of positive feedback! Today, I am excited to share another pork belly recipe with you guys. This “Pork Belly and Mushroom” tastes great and is also very easy-to-make. I am sure you guys will like it as well.
The ingredients for the dish is very simple: pork belly, mushroom, peppers and garlic. For the mushroom, I used King Oyster Mushroom. It’s woody, sweet flavor and firm texture, matches great with the pork belly. You could find them easily in most of the Asian markets.
First, I blanched the pork belly to get rid of excessive fat. After that, I pan-fried the pork belly until they are browned and have a crispy edge. The pork belly will release a lot of fat during the cooking process, I discarded half of the oil and use the other half for stir frying the rest of the ingredients.
It is one of my favorite stir-fried pork belly recipes. The seasoning is simple, ingredients are convenient to find, and only takes less than 30 minutes to make.
I can’t wait to enjoy this dish with a bowl of white rice. I hope you guys will try it out sometime and I am confident you guys will like this savory tasty dish!
