Fry for 2 minutes, than soak the pork in cold water for 5 minutes.
Afterwards, cut the pork into slices 1/2-cm (1/4-in) thick.
Arrange in a bowl, skin side down, and pour over the seasoning sauce.
Steam over a high heat for 1 1/2 hours.
Drain off the gravy, reserving it for later use.
Cover the bowl with a warmed plate, then reverse it quickly to put the pork, skin side up, on the plate.
Adjust the seasoning of the gravy, pour it over the pork and serve.
