  • 1 Let’s begin by combining the pork belly with garlic and black peppercorns in a pot filled with water enough to cover the meat. Now, bring this to a boil over high heat then to a simmer over low heat until the pork is tender. Take the meat out and allow it to drain in a strainer.
  • 2 Flavour the pork with fish sauce before frying or grilling (baking is another option) until they are crisp. Then, slice the pork into bite-sized strips.
  • 3 Next, grab a pan and make it nice and hot over medium heat. Pour some oil and throw in the onion, garlic and ginger. Add the pork strips and chilis, and season them well them with Knorr Liquid Seasoning. For the final touch, mix the pork with mayonnaise.
