Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok. Put in pork belly and sear until golden brown on all sides. Add shallot, ginger slices and stir fry for 3 minutes or until fragrant. Sizzle with wine.

Cooking tips:

In this recipe, the meat is seared in oil rather than scalded in water. It adds a light caramel taste to the meat.
