Crispy Marmite Pork Belly 香脆妈蜜炸肉

In Singapore and Malaysia, Marmite is widely used for cooking pork ribs, chicken, prawns and crabs in hawker stalls and restaurants. It's especially popular in Malaysia, you can find Marmite dishes in almost every Tze Char stalls. (Tze Char 煮炒 is a term commonly used to describe a wallet friendly, home style cuisine from Chinese stalls that serves a wide variety of ala-carte dishes.)

Marmite has an intense flavour that is pungent, salty with a hint of sweetness and it works beautifully with meat dishes especially pork with fat. By adding Marmite in the marinade, it helps to reduce the 'porky smell'. It's a great way to add a deep, rich savoury quality to the recipe.
