Extremely bold and beautiful flavours, this Red Braised Pork Belly will blow your mind. Sticky and crispy little pork belly cubes cooked until perfection. Chinese five spice brings all the boys to the yard and how could it not? With more than enough flavour to share its just what this recipe needed.

Braised then pan-fried, getting the best of both worlds. Tender but firm and addictive for sure, these hit the spot, so why not try it out. Grab your favourite wok or large frying pan and enjoy the satisfying taste of the cube.
