Asian-Spiced Pork Belly

Pork belly fans anyone? Sure, it's not the most diet-friendly ingredient on the planet, but it's ok to indulge in it from time to time. Especially when you cook it in a delicious way. We've decided to give it an Asian flavor by spicing it up with some soy sauce, hoisin, rice vinegar, and garlic and serve it with a simple side of rice.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
