A staple dish from Shanghai, my sweetest memory of home. I have been craving this dish since I came to the States years ago. But I never manged to cook once like what sits in the memory. However, I was inspired by the blog "Anthropologist in the Kitchen" which has a video showing how to make another staple dish called sweet and sour rib. The principle is the same. So I tried again during the weekend of this mighty meat dish...And I nailed it. It was exactly what I have been craving for. I was so excited and bought more pork belly hope to make more.
