  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 kg pork belly skinless
  • 2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • ½ cup of packed brown sugar
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 200 grams pickled carrots
  • green onion slants for garnish
  • coconut rice


  • Firstly, cut the pork belly into 1 inch cubes and set aside.
  • Next, set a wok on medium heat with brown sugar and water. When the sugar has melted and looks like caramel, add the coconut milk and fish sauce.
  • Add the pork belly to this and bring to an energetic simmer. Simmer for 1.5 hours uncovered and only mix 1-2 times.
  • While simmering, get a medium pot of water to a boil and add the eggs for ~7 minutes. When the eggs are cooked, place into an ice water to cool.
  • Serve over rice and with your choice of vegetables to garnish!
