Dong Po Rou is a traditional Chinese dish with a rich history. It is named after the famous Song Dynasty poet and official Su Dongpo. He was a great fan of this dish and even came up with his own version of it. Using the clay pot to prepare the meat is also an ancient Chinese cooking technique, which ensures a wonderfully tender and juicy result.

This dish is often eaten during the Lunar New Year festival to symbolize prosperity and good luck. The slow roasting technique results in a tender and flavorful pork belly, which pairs perfectly with the sweet and savory sauce. Try this dish and be surprised by the traditional flavors of Chinese cuisine.
