Yield: 2-4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
Difficulty Level: Moderate

You'll Need:

For the pork belly:

  • 3 lb pork belly
  • 2 cups hot cooking oil
  • salt, pepper & garlic oil to taste

For the teriyaki sauce:

  • 1 piece of ginger
  • 1 piece of leek
  • 1 red chili pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ⅓ cup white wine
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 sprig of mint

For the noodles:

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the stir fry vegetables:

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • ½ leek, julienned
  • ½ carrot, julienned
  • 1 handful of bean sprouts

Here's How:

1. Poke the surface of the raw pork belly several times with a fork and season the meat with salt, pepper, and garlic oil. Place the pork belly on a baking tray, transfer the pan to a preheated oven, and cook at 325°F for 2 hours. For the teriyaki sauce, skewer the ginger, leek, chili pepper, and garlic, and brown them with a culinary torch. Add the browned vegetables to a cocktail shaker together with the white wine, soy sauce, brown sugar, and mint and heat the ingredients on a stovetop, making sure to occasionally shake the cocktail shaker.

2. For the noodles, combine the bread flour, water, and salt and knead into a smooth dough. Cover the dough and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, knead the dough again, let sit for a few more minutes, and then roll it out into a thin oval. Dust the dough with flour, fold it, and cut it into thin noodles. Boil the noodles in lightly salted water for 1-2 minutes.

3. For the stir fry vegetables, heat some cooking oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the leek and carrot strips. Add the bean sprouts, fold in the cooked noodles, pour some of the teriyaki sauce into the pan, and let the sauce simmer.

4. For the crispy pork belly, heat 2 cups of cooking oil. Remove the cooked pork belly from the oven and pour the hot cooking oil over the meat to form a crust.

5. Cut the pork belly into individual strips and serve with the teriyaki stir fry and homemade noodles. Garnish with chili peppers and cilantro before serving.
