Braised Pork Belly Served In Chinese Steamed Bun 扣肉馒头[电饭煲食谱]

Thanks to Tefal and Singapore Home Cooks (SHC) for inviting me to participate in a contest to create recipe using Tefal product, one of my favourite cookware.

I am blessed to have this Tefal Optimal Fuzzy Logic 1.8L Rice Cooker that is packed with plenty of features and settings, the recipes that I am going to create with this fuzzy logic rice cooker is definitely not just rice. A rice cooker can cook more than rice and it can make wonder if you have got one with innovative technology. 

First in my menu is the ALL-IN-ONE Braised Pork Belly Served In Chinese Steamed Bun. An easy recipe that other than ingredients, all you need is a rice cooker. Simply stir fry the pork belly and spices in the inner pot of the rice cooker, cover, set the time and let it cook. When it's ready, steam the leaf bun in the steam basket. Serve with lettuce and cherry tomatoes to complete your meal.

1. Wash the pork belly, pat dry with kitchen towel. Cut into 7 thick slices. Add in (A), mix well. Cover with cling wrap and let it marinate for 1 hour.

2. Turn the rice cooker on DIY mode, heat 2 tbsp of cooking oil in the inner pot. Add in (B), stir fry until fragrant.

3. Add pork belly (reserve the marinates). Cook the pork belly until both sides are slightly brown. Add in the remaining marinates.

Tips: The 3D spherical pot encourage heat circulation from all direction. Make sure there’s no overlapping when you add in the pork belly so that the sides are cooked evenly. It’s fine if the pork belly are placed at the sides of the pot. 

4. Stir in (C). Mix well. 

5. Close the lid. Set the time to 45 minutes (DIY mode). 

6. When the cooking is done, place the Chinese leaf bun on the steam basket. Open the rice cooker lid, flip the pork belly.  Put the steam basket in the rice cooker, close the lid, set the time to 15 minutes (DIY mode).

7. To serve: Gently tear-open the steamed lotus leaf bun. Place a lettuce leaf followed by a slice of braised pork belly and some coriander leaves. Serve with cherry tomatoes and more lettuce to complete your meal.
