Roast Pork Belly With Carrot & Bamboo Shoot 双笋烧肉煲

Roast Pork Belly With Carrot & Bamboo Shoot 双笋烧肉煲

Recipe source :  Chopsticks Recipes - Chinese Casseroles

This cookbook titled, 'Chopsticks Recipes - Chinese Casseroles' is a bi-lingual Hong Kong  publication which has been in my possession for a long time. This is one of my favourite cookbooks. I have already tried out many recipes from this cookbook. So far all the recipes which I tried turned out great. 

Today, I am sharing this great dish, preferably to be eaten with hot steaming rice. The carrots were sweet and still crunchy as were the bamboo shoots. Every bite into the piping hot roast pork belly tasted heavenly as they were well-coated with the fragrant sauce. In fact, all the flavours blended very well together.

150g bamboo shoot
150g carrot
2 pips garlic, minced
2 shallots, chopped

1 tbsp oyster sauce
a pinch of pepper
