Sometimes you just really want to be “bad” and you have those cravings for things that you know you shouldn’t but you just want it so bad. Living in England one of the things I really miss is the American version of Chinese takeaway food. Although I know that I don’t want the food hangover that would surely (and has) occurred when I get weak and order from my local Indian or Chinese… so I ordered from an even more local place- my husband. Placed an order for pork belly to be brought home and I came up with this magical dish.
1 package pork belly
handful of peas (or diced pods)
Chinese 5 Spice
Meat: lt a small amount of coconut oil and mix with a 1tsp of Chinese 5 spice. Use this to heavily coat the pork belly and place in a 200C hot oven for 35-45 minutes depending on the size of the cut. When cooked remove to cool and dice into edible pieces.
Rice: Dice peppers, carrots and onions and sauté in a small amount of coconut oil. When onions become translucent add in beans and allow to come back up to temperature before adding rice. (If you are not eating white rice you can substitute cauliflower that has been diced in a food processor). Add 1-2tbsp coconut aminos to taste, 1tsp Chinese 5 spice and 1tsp of tumeric. When all food is up to temperature (few minutes) remove from heat and add two whole eggs while mixing.
On a plate first add your rice mixture then top with an adequate amount of pork belly for a devilishly delicious but much healthier craving cure!
