Cut the pork belly into bite size pieces and fry in a pan.
Cut the daikon into about the same thickness (about 1.5 cm) quarter rounds as the pork and fry together with pork.
Fry until the daikon is browned (nice and crispy).
Grate the ginger and combine with other sauce ingredients (Do not use too much red chili. It might be too spicy.)
Pour over the combined the Step 4 sauce ingredients into the pan.
Cook for a while until the daikon is tender (add water if necessary).
When the daikon is tender, it is done. Very nice with rice! Boil eggs together with it and it will be good!
Story Behind this Recipe
Braised pork belly and daikon radish has been always one of the side dishes I make, but I added some changes to the recipe a friend's mum showed me. I made it more substantial using my usual ingredients.
The daikon absorbs the flavour as it is cooled down. It tastes better when left to stand for a while than eaten straight away. It is nice if you cook boiled eggs together with it. If you heat the daikon for 2 to 3 minutes in a microwave beforehand you can cook the dish quickly.
