Cooking Lab - Five Spice Tofu w Pork Belly & Green Pepper (五花肉炒五香豆干)

Published Recipe: Crispy Pork Belly with Five Spice Tofu & Green Pepper

I am in love with pork belly and this stir-fry dish is memorable in many ways. First, it makes use of any leftover marinated pork belly. Secondly, it is a very budget conscious dish. Thirdly, it is easy to prepare and the taste is simply delicious.
