    Smoked and Braised Asian Belly

    B]Smoked and Braised Asian Pork Belly
    Roasted Corn in Sweet Soy Garlic Sauce[/B]

    Pork Belly
    2.5 slab of pork belly
    Chinese Five Spice
    Kosher salt
    Crushed Red Pepper

    Sauce
    2C cider or cane vinegar
    1-3/4C soy sauce
    3/4C brown sugar
    1-1/4C water
    1.5T sesame oil
    1.5T fish sauce
    * half or full measure
    *3-6 star anise
    *4-8 Cloves, whole
    *3-6 garlic cloves, minced
    *1 small or medium knob of ginger, chopped
    *1-2 Serrano or other chile, chopped
    Green onion, chopped for garnish

    *This sauce when made into the reduction sauce is very intense.
    It is full of spice and has some heat, and is not for those with an soft palate.
    It can be made with the half measures to accommodate the less adventuresome palate.

    Score the bottom of the belly and
    season both sides generously with the Five Spice, salt and red pepper





    Smoke at 375 for two hours, I used Cherry for smoke
    Make the sauce while the belly smokes
    Preheat oven to 350 at 1.5hrs into the smoke
    Transfer to large casserole dish and add sauce just to the top of the belly
    Cover with foil and braise for two hours

    Once done let belly rest on cutting board
    Place 2C of sauce in small saucepan and reduce by half by boiling
    Mix 1T of cornstarch with 1T of water and whisk into the reduction during boil
    Let boil a minute while continuing to whisk, remove from heat.

    1 ear of corn per person
    1/2 Red Onion, chopped
    1 bunch of Green onions, chopped
    Salt and Crushed Red Pepper to taste

    1/4C Soy sauce
    1/4 Seasoned rice vinegar
    1T Garlic, minced and mashed
    1/8C brown sugar
    Combine ingredients and whisk together

    Grill corn to get some nice color on it
    Cut the corn off the cob and transfer to a preheated wok or large/deep skillet
    Add the sauce and cook over high heat for two minutes stirring constantly
    Add in onion and continue to cook/stir for two more minutes
