Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce (豆油肉)

I love braised dishes and have been wanting to do a braise sauce instead of using premix seasoning. While I followed the recipe from Noobcook – the taste was too bland so I adjusted with light soy and sweet soy sauce. After one night, the taste is much better but not yet close enough to how my mum makes it yet so I will need to experiment more.  I left out the sugar, eggs and mushroom from the original recipe. This dish goes very well with rice or noodles.
