    INGREDIENTS:

    • 320 grams pork belly
    • 1 tablespoon Tianmianjiang (sweet wheaten bean paste)
    • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sugar - granulated
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    • 1.25 centimeters ginger - fresh peeled and thinly julienned
    • 2 teaspoons doubanjiang (chili bean paste)
    • 75 grams garlic scapes trimmed and chopped into 2 in. pieces
    • 1 bunch scallions trimmed and chopped into 2 in. pieces
    INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Put the pork belly in a pot that it barely fits in. Add cold water until the pork is completely submerged. Remove the pork, then bring the pot of water to a boil. Add the pork, cover and simmer over medium low heat for 20 minutes.
    2. Remove the pork from the liquid, wrap it in foil and then place it in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours. This solidify's the fat making it easy to slice. You can skim the liquid and use it as a soup base for another dish, or just pour it out.
    3. Once the pork is chilled use a sharp knife to slice it into 1/8" (3mm) thick slices.
    4. In a small bowl, combine the Tianmianjiang, Shaoxing, soy sauce and sugar.
    5. Heat a wok or large sauté pan over high heat until very hot. Add the oil, then add the sliced pork belly. Stir-fry until the pork has started to crisp around the edges.
    6. Drain off the excess oil and then push the pork to the edges of the pan. Add the ginger and doubanjiang. Fry until the chili sauce is fragrant (10-15 seconds).
    7. Add the garlic sprouts and stir-fry with the pork until the garlic sprouts are cooked through.
    8. Add the bowl of sauce along with the scallions and stir-fry until all the liquid has evaporated.
