Recipe Description:

In Mandarin, the words for ‘meat’ and ‘pork’ are the same, while the character for ‘family’ resembles a pig under a roof. Pigs are literal piggy banks in rural China, a natural storage for excess agriculture, ready to be cashed in for a rainy day or a special occasion. As a result, cooks all over China have developed techniques for making full use of every part of these beloved animals. Pork’s flavour comes from its fat, which is half the reason why tender, melting, slow-roasted pork belly is perhaps the most prized cut. Gently fragrant, clean vegetables are the ideal counterpoint to such a full-on centrepiece.
