SINARSAHANG PORK BELLY

Among all the pork cuts, a lot of us has a special bias to the pork belly. Pork belly is the resulting boneless cut once you remove the loin and the spareribs. The pork belly cut is suitable in a wide range of dishes because it has the right proportion of the skin, lean and fat. They can be made into fried, roasted, braised, grilled, curried, or simmered in your type of sauce.

As a fan of pork belly, I usually simply grill or fry my pork belly, then have them with my special suka. But sometimes, the oilyness of this type of cooking is too much, making me feel like my arteries are starting to clog. When I was still an apprentice in a restaurant, the head chef told me that when you have a fatty dish, you need to combine it with something sour or acidic to prevent the “suya” or the “umay”. I am enjoying my special suka but I believe that the pork belly can be prepared better.

This morning, I was supposed to have some fried pork belly with freshly chopped tomatoes. But unfortunately, I ran out of tomatoes. (Sad). But this gave me an idea to just simmer them in tomato sauce, which I have in the pantry. This is how the sinarsahang pork belly has been given birth! After a while, I started marinating the meat first in a marinade with some lime soda to make eat sweet and more tender.

For this recipe, pork belly will be simmered in a tomato-based sauce. But before that, the belly will be marinated well in a secret combination of seasonings. If you wanna know how to make some sinarsahang pork belly, read and follow the simple steps below. Happy cooking!

HOW TO MAKE SINARSAHANG PORK BELLY

Sinarsahang pork belly is much easier than the lechon paksiw, if that is what you’re thinking.

Start by marinating the meat in a marinade made from lime soda and soy sauce. The lime soda will help in tenderizing the meat.

After marinating, sear the pork belly to render some meaty oil. Searing also adds flavor to the dish as it seals the juices in the meat. Then, add the marinade and let it simmer. It may take a while for the pork to become soft. Always check if you need to add some water to help it cook. Lastly, add the tomato sauce. If you want it extra sour, you can add some teaspoons of tomato paste. You can add some sugar to balance the taste.

Once the veggies are also cooked, then it’s ready! I really love  my sinarsahang pork belly with some hot steaming rice. The sour sauce, the meaty pork belly and my sticky rice is truly the combination you never thought you should ask for. You can also make this spicy by adding some red chilies. Yum!
