Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 4 Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Pork belly 250g
Malted rice (shiokoji) 2 tbsp
Carrot 1
Aubergine 1/2
Beansprouts a handful
Your favourite vegetables plenty
Ponzu sauce as required

Method

1
Add the malted rice to the pork belly, put in a ziploc bag and keep sealed in the fridge overnight. Finely slice the pork belly the next day.
2
Chop the vegetables to bitesize pieces. I used cauliflower, aubergine, carrot, celery and onion. You can add mushrooms, asparagus and courgettes, etc.
3
Brush the base of a heavy pan (like Le Creuset) with oil and add the vegetables and arrange the sliced pork belly on top. Put the lid on and steam cook on low or medium heat for 15 minutes. Don't add any water.
4
The pork should be half cooked. Add the beansprouts and any soft vegetables like cabbage and steam cook again for 10 minutes.
5
All the vegetables should be nicely cooked. Drain off the oil and any liquid and mix the pork with the vegetables. Add the ponzu sauce and mix in before serving.

Tips & Note

As you're steam cooking the vegetables and pork, you'll really enjoy the natural flavours of all the ingredients.
