6. Add the Chinkiang vinegar, shaoxing wine, rock sugar, soy sauces and chicken powder. Stir and fry the pork pieces until well browned.
7. Pour in the water. Bring to a boil. Then cover pan with lid and simmer pork until tender.
8. Uncover and cook until pork is crispy and the sauce reduces to a glaze.

SERVING
8. Serve the Chinese Crispy Roasted Pork Belly over braised lettuce, garnished with green onion slices.

TIPS
