Stir Fry Pork Belly With Salted Fish 香炒咸鱼花腩

My first attempt cooking this dish was 4 years ago, cooked using an air fryer to fry the pork belly before stir frying in a skillet. This method is less oily, if you don't mind washing more items, you can try out the recipe here. After I bought a mini rice cooker, I then tried out the rice cooker version here

It is a flat based 30cm stainless steel wok which is perfect for stir-frying especially when I need to cook bigger portion of food. It is a multiply stainless steel wok without chemical coating, it's safe to use not only for stir frying but in any cooking.
