Pork belly with Five spice veggies!


  • Bok Choy (discard stalks - unless you can be bothered cooking them separately!)
  • Green beans
  • Orange capsicum
  • 3 small peeled Shallots sliced
  • 1 de-seeded Chilli sliced
  • 2cm piece fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsps Butter
  • 2 tsps Chinese five spice
  • 2 Tbsps Gluten Free soy sauce
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp tomato sauce

Sauté your shallots, chilli, ginger, garlic in butter and sesame oil, once tender add the spice, sugar, soy sauce and tomato sauce, add green beans, capsicum and cook but still crisp, then add bok choy at the end for quick cooking and add a couple tablespoons of water. Serve underneath roasted pork belly.
