Mama J's braised pork belly and eggs! 🐖 (thit kho) - sweet, salty, fatty goodness that melts in your mouth! 😍
- Thick cut pork belly (cut to preferred size)
- Hardboiled eggs
- Diced garlic
- Coconut juice
- Lemongrass paste
- Soy sauce
- Fish sauce
- Brown sugar
- Cooking Karamel
- Optional: chilli
1. Saute garlic (amount to preference) in a pan on high heat with soy sauce and fish sauce until lightly charred and aromatic (optional: chilli)
2. Sear pork belly pieces in the same pan, crumble brown sugar over the meat, turn pieces to caramelise majority of surfaces
3. Transfer the pan's contents to a pot, add coconut juice till meat is covered, bring to a boil over high heat
4. Lower to medium heat - time to get the flavours right! Add soy sauce, fish sauce and cooking karamel until a sweet and salty flavour is achieved (to preference, tip: test broth over white rice)
5. Add a squeeze of lemongrass paste, cover pot, simmer on medium heat for at least 60mins (depending on amount) or until pork belly is soft and tender
6. Submerge hardboiled eggs during the last 15mins
7. Serve pork belly over white rice, along with one braised egg, lightly coat rice with broth

Chicken off the bones.
I could’ve used the bones and veggie scraps I have in the freezer to make a broth but I don’t feel like making soup so just tossing out the bones. Too bad.
Love using the NuWave oven for this, chicken thighs. The meat is always very tender & succulent.
I have a lot of kitchen appliances and tools for cooking. It’s been awhile since I used the NuWave Oven. Glad I did. In the summer it’s great because this oven doesn’t heat up the kitchen. It is bulky to store, though.
