    Love this recipe! I’ve made it countless times since finding it I did modify the slow cooker time to one hour on low, then one hour on high

    Very sweet but very nice. I cooked the pork in the slowcooker for 7 hours instead but it gave the same results. I made the glaze at the same time I pit thr meat in the slow cooker and just left it all until the evening. All i had to do when we wanted dinner was take thr pork out of the slowcooker, fry the meat a bit and and put on the glaze for 5mins while in the pan. While the glaze was on I did micro rice. Easy no fuss in the evening I like! It might be too sweet for some so I'd suggest maybe turning this into something like duck pancakes with cucumber and spring onions. 🤔 Or steamed buns.

    Too sweet but amazing nonetheless
    It was pretty good. Had some difficulties with the souse and I didn't use it in the end and it was still pretty good.

    the best pork belly recipe ever!

    Skipped the spicy, since we wanted something sweet. It turned out really good. I had to change pork belly for loin, since belly was nowhere to be found in my area. That made it a little dry. I would stick to belly if you can find it.

    Beautiful every time, add ramen noodles to the broth after and you’re in for a real treat.

    I didn’t have rice wine, but this turned out fabulous. Succulent, juicy, sticky, sweet.

    I have made this dish so many times missing out an ingredient that I couldn't get my hands on here or there. Made it this evening with everything included (might have gone to 2 supermarkets just to get it all 😂) and it was incredible, the best one i've made yet!
