Steamed Pork Belly with Portobello Mushroom

After I have successfully using corn flour for my previous post on Steamed Pork Belly with Salted Fish (咸鱼蒸猪肉), this time I used it again for steaming pork belly with fresh mushroom.  The end result????  The slices of pork belly and mushroom is so flavorful and the gravy itself is also very yummy.  And....the slices of mushroom is  chewy and tasted like abalone!  
My children enjoyed mixing the gravy with the rice and I regretted that I didn't cook extra rice for this! It's very appetizing indeed!!!

Ingredients :
- 1 strip of pork belly (skinned, sliced and marinated)
- 2 large portobello mushrooms (sliced)
- 2 tbsp young shredded ginger

- 2 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1 red chili (sliced)

- some diced spring onions for garnishing (I had run out of spring onions, so, no garnishing :)
Marinate : (to taste)
- soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp tapioca flour
Seasonings (Sauce) : to taste
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp miso
- 1/4 tsp pepper 
- 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine 
- 2 tbsp water
Method :
1)  Marinate pork belly for about 15 minutes.
2)  Meanwhile, heat oil in a wok and saute garlic and ginger until aromatic.  Dish up.
3)  Boil water in a steamer. 
4)  Arrange slices of pork belly and mushroom alternately on a steaming plate.
5)  Mix seasonings and pour all over the marinated pork belly and mushroom.
6)  Add fried garlic, ginger and shredded chili on top.
7)  Steam over rapid boiling water for 15 minutes. 
8)  Remove and garnish (with diced spring onions).
9)  Serve with hot steamed rice.
~Simple, fuss-free and healthy dish ~
Have a great day ahead !

    1. Hi Lian, you can use Chinese or mushrooms, but fresh ones is better. My family likes fresh mushrooms esp my hubby. He is the one who used to buy all sorts of fresh mushrooms from the supermarket and I just cook it whatever that comes into my mind, hahahaha..

  7. Haaaa!! I am loving the flavors but because I don't cook pork at home, I am looking at replacing it with chicken or fish. The gravy with the punch of miso is yum.

  16. Hi Ivy,

    At first glance, I thought that your pork belly is braised with very nice colour but after reading I realised that it is steamed, not braised!!! I like to try your method of steaming pork belly... Unlike most pale steamed, yours looks very appetizing!

    1. Hi Mui Mui, you can in fact substitute it with any types of mushrooms or any available ingredients. There's no fixed rules and most of my recipes depend on the available ingredients I have on that particular day. Just be creative and you will be surprised with the results. Have a great weekend ahead :)
