Braised Pork Belly and Quail Egg
Braised Pork Belly and Quail Egg, Asadong Liempo at Itlog ng Pugo. I have been craving for this kind of dish for some time now. I just love the combination of flavors of braised egg and braised fatty pork. I know that pork belly are not the healthiest part of pork, and it is also made more sinful with the combination of whole eggs. Well it does not hurt much if we want to satisfy our cravings once in a while. Pork asado is one of my easiest dish to prepare, I do not usually sauté or sear my my asado or braised recipe. I would just put all the ingredients and let it simmer and slow cooked until the meat are so tender that it actually melts in your mouth.
