TIPS:

1. With the pork belly, it is best to choose with the skin on. The extra textures are delicious.

2. Pork belly should be cut as thin and evenly as possible. It can be put in the freezer for a bit to firm up a bit and it will be easier to cut.

3. If you do not like very spicy foods, you can remove the seeds of the pepper, or replace it with green pepper.

4. Does not use oil to stir fry Hangzhou pepper so that it doesn’t burn the flavors from the pepper.
