Stir Fried Pork Belly with Green Peppers – Jiao Chao Rou

I had this for the first time on a recent stopover in Guangzhou, Southern China and I just had to recreate it for you guys at home!

Jiao Chao Rou is a simple stir fry of pork and green peppers, it’s extremely quick and easy. In fact, you can have this prepped and on the table in 10 minutes flat so it’s perfect for a quick midweek dinner. It’s also a great way to use up those green peppers in the fridge that you always have leftover from the bag!

Pork belly is a really inexpensive cut of meat so you can afford to get a good piece; at the very least it should be free range.

Before you slice the pork belly, you will need to carefully remove the hard thin outer layer of skin at the top of the cut. If you don’t then you’ll end up with really chewy bits getting stuck in your teeth!

If you want some heat to this dish you can add some long green chillis. I’ve used the spicy light green Turkish peppers, or Nam Prik Nom as their known in Thailand, but feel free to use whatever you have.

      Instructions
      1. Combine one tablespoon of soy sauce, the corn flour and the pepper with pork and mix well. Set aside.
      2. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a wok over a high heat and toss in the pork. Sir fry for 3 minutes or until the pork has turned a nice dark colour. Remove the pork with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil.
      3. You should be left with a mixture of fat and oil. Chuck in the peppers and the white parts of the onion and fry over high heat for three minutes, tossing the pan every so often. you want some 'char' on the peppers so don't move them continuously.
      4. Revove the peppers with a slotted spoon. At this point you can remove some of the oil if you want to keep it a little healthier.
      5. Throw the pork and peppers/onions back in the wok with the green parts of the onion and the other tablespoon of soy sauce. add a splash of water and cook for a minute, stirring to combine everything together.
      6. Serve in bowls next to piles of steamed Jasmine rice.
