    Caramel pork belly - Hands on Kitchen

    This is a super easy dish to make that's very good!

    Start off by trimming the skin/fat off the pork belly, NOTE (some people prefer to leave it on) slick the pork belly thin and place in a pot, add the crushed up or cut up peppers then go down the list with the sweet sauce, fish sauce, and sugar, once the pork is mostly cooked, add the 1/4 cup of water and cook till the water is reduced so you're left with a thick sauce like fluid. Plate the pork and sprinkle the red onions on top and some fresh ground pepper, serve with the cucumbers and a side dish of rice.

    do note, this dish uses a lot of fish sauce, be warned, when cooking, the food will smell pretty darn bad, but I assure you, once its done it wont smell bad and it will taste great.

    Then don't eat bacon.

    =)

    What's funny is, if you took a hotdog to asia, people would look at you weird and not wanna touch it.

    American = grind up all the nasty bits pump them full of preservatives and freeze it for a year or two. yummy!
    Most of Asia as with most of the world outside of American, = kill it, butcher it and eat it as fresh as you can, Linhs family back in Vietnam to this day doesn't even have a refrigerator. You grow your veggies and pick up your meat from the local markets.

    With that being said one of my favorite American foods is scrapple, I love it and could care less what's in it.
