Mmm, pork belly.
So fatty, so flavorful, it melts in your mouth with its magical, meaty powers. And while chefs around the world have really gotten into a pork belly state of mind over the past five or ten years, it's the Chinese who've really been leading the game for centuries.
It's no secret that Huang's World host Eddie Huang loves to eat, and as the founder and owner of Baohaus, he knows his pork belly damn well.
In the next episode of Huang's World on VICELAND, Eddie Huang travels to China with his parents to explore his heritage as a Taiwanese-Chinese-American, and to discover the most important dish of his life: Red Cooked Pork. Check out the trailer for the episode below.
This iconic Chinese dish—Hunan, to be more specific—is laced with star anise, cinnamon, and ginger, with a perfect balance of salty and sweet. And lucky you—here's the recipe.
