Sticky Pork Belly Bites (PKP 4.8L & 5.7L)
These tasty bite-sized Christmas trees are sure to wow your guests.
Serve as a Christmas canape assembled with peeled cucumber to perfectly balance the flavours.
6 tbsp dark soy sauce
4 tbsp fish sauce
2 limes, juiced
175g soft brown sugar
2cm fresh ginger, grated
1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
900g pork belly, cut in to 5cm chunks
2 tbsp olive or cooking oil
Add the soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar to inner pot and stir to combine.
Select the SAUTE function and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
Leave the syrup to cool then add to a bowl along with the chunks of pork. Leave this to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Wash and dry the inner pot.
Select the SAUTE function, then add the oil and allow to heat. Add the pork, leaving the sauce for now, along with the chilli and ginger and stir regularly for about 5 minutes to brown on all sides.
Return the sauce to the inner pot. Press CANCEL, then put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the STEW/SOUP function and adjust the time to 15 minutes.
When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the SLOW RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.
Select the SAUTE function again and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes to thicken the sauce for a final time.
Leave to cool and make your cucumber Christmas trees using a peeler, then assemble them on cocktail sticks.
