Braised Pork Belly in Root Beer

   

Root Beer Tau Yu Bak

Check Out: Chinese Braised Pork Belly Recipe

Braised pork belly (豆油肉)or “Tau Yu Bak” is my family favourite dish. It is easy to cook with few ingredients and I always cook a large pot with plans for leftovers as it keep well. Recently, I saw recipes for root beer braised pork belly which I thought was really interesting. I have used coca-cola for my chicken wings, so I know it works by caramelising and tenderising the meat while sweetening the stew. Try this if you like a sweeter version of tau yu bak stew. I use my family base recipe for the braised pork belly stew, added a can of root beer and omitted the rock sugar. Though I have only tried with root beer, I am sure it will work with other sweet drinks like Coke too. This is a deliciously savoury dish that goes well with rice or steamed buns Chinese steamed buns.

    Love all kinds of braised pork, but haven’t tried to cook with root beer. Your dish looks so attractive. Want to give it a go.

    Who would have thought of another use for soft drink- i do not like soft drinks in general but this is intriguing.

    I loves pork belly but the thought of using root beer in the braising is something really new to me. Just wonder what is the taste but I got to try it to find out. I’m bookmarking this and hopefully my family would loves this dish.
