Paleo / Primal / Bacon / CleanEats Lifestyle
This was my first attempt at cooking pork belly. The only thing I will do differently next time is to not score the pork skin as deep. Next time I will just go through the skin and not the layer of fat underneath. I used a 5 spice blend that has; cinnamon, star anise, fennel, ginger, cloves, white pepper and licorice root.
5 Spice Pork Belly:
Braised Red Cabbage and Green Apple
Core and slice cabbage into thin strips. Core and slice apple into thin strips. In a large saute pan, add the butter and melt over medium heat. Add the cabbage, apples, salt and pepper, and saute until the cabbage softens about 20mins. Deglaze with red wine and apple cider vinegar.
