So Easy! Boiled Pork With My All-Purpose Spicy Aromatic Sauce

Just boil the meat in hot water and leave it! It's easy, but all your guests will be surprised how easy it is.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Pork belly block (or pork butt)
500 g
1 knob
The green part of a Japanese leek
1 teaspoon
●Soy sauce
4 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
●Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
●Oyster sauce
2 teaspoons
●Doubanjiang, ra-yu
1/2 teaspoon of each
●Garlic, ginger
1 clove/knob of each
●The white part of a Japanese leek
5 cm
Vegetables to serve on the side
to taste


1. Combine the ● ingredients in a bowl. Mince the leek, ginger and garlic beforehand.
2. Put the pork, leek, ginger and salt in a pot (no need to cut the ginger and leek), and add enough water to cover the pork. Turn on the heat.
3. When the pot comes to a boil, lower the heat, and cover the contents of the pot with parchment paper as a drop lid (otoshibuta). Cover with a pot lid and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes.
4. When a skewer goes through the pork easily it's done. Keep the pork covered in the pot until it's time to eat.
5. Just slice whatever portion you will eating, and microwave. Serve with vegetables of your choice, with the aromatic sauce.
6. This multi-purpose sauce is a recipe I'm proud of. I added chopped nuts, doubanjiang and ra-yu to the basic aromatic sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

Pork belly blocks were on sale, so I tried serving it with my usual aromatic sauce with a bit of spiciness added.
