  • Heat a large pan with 2 tablespoons of oil on medium high heat. Once heated, add the 2 pounds of pork belly and garlic powder. Cook until the outside of the pork is no longer pink.
  • After about five minutes, add fish sauce and soy sauce and stir. Cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Add brown sugar replacement and stir thoroughly to coat all of the pork. Cook for another 5-6 minutes to let the sugar caramelize over the pork. Once the pork belly is a dark golden color, drain excess fat ( you can save this for future cooking or put it in a container, let it harden, then discard it).
  • Sprinkle black pepper to taste and adjust the sweetness based on your preference. Add chopped thai chilis as desired, I do this once the pork belly is caramelized.
