A well-done pork belly should be so soft that it melts in your mouth. And so is our glazed pork belly with caramelized pears. Did we just say caramelized pears? Oh, you should totally try them alongside pork!

Ingredients

Steps

1
Done

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet and add the pork belly slices.

2

Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

3
Done

Stir and add 1/2 teaspoon of butter.

4
Done

When the pork belly pieces start to cook, add the soy sauce.

5
Done

Stir, cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the water. Cook until the pork belly is cooked through and the sauce reduces.

6
Done

Take another skillet and melt the remaining butter on high heat.

7
Done

Add the pear slices, brown sugar, and cognac.

8

When the liquid starts to simmer, light it using a long barbecue lighter. Light the pan right away so the pears don't absorb all the alcohol.

If you’re using a gas stove, remove the pan from the heat before you add the alcohol!

Cook for 1 more minute, then set aside.

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. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
