Pork Belly Stir Fry with Vegetables


Tender pieces of golden brown pork coated in a savory, sticky sauce. This pork belly stir fry is the ultimate low-carb Chinese dish. It’s so easy to whip up that you’ll never reach for takeout again.



1 lb (450 g) pork belly (skin-on), thinly sliced

2 poblano peppers, cut into chunks or julienne, seeds removed

3 tablespoons light soy sauce

1-inch piece of ginger, cut in slivers

2 tablespoons garlic, minced

5 green onions, sliced lengthwise, separate white & green

1/3 cup cooking wine

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons Sichuan-style broad bean sauce, optional

1 teaspoon dark soy sauce, optional

salt, to taste


Remove the fatty portions from the pork belly and cut it into smaller pieces. Heat the fat parts in a fry pan over medium-high heat until the oil is released. Add the pepper along with half of the soy sauce to the rendered fat. Cook over high heat for two minutes, ensuring it doesn’t become soggy. Remove pepper from the pan, leaving a bit of oil behind. Set aside.

Add the remaining lean pork belly slices, ginger, garlic, and white portions of the green onion to the pan. Cook on high until the meat turns brown. Add the remaining soy sauce, cooking wine, and sesame oil, plus the (optional) broad bean sauce and dark soy sauce. Salt if desired.

Once the pork is thoroughly cooked, add the pepper back in and stir-fry for an additional minute. Garnish with the green portions of the onions, sesame seeds, or chopped red chillies. Serve and enjoy!
