  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 pounds pork belly
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns, cracked
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • fried garlic bits, optional


  • In a wide, heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat oil.
  • Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until softened.
  • Add pork and cook until lightly browned.
  • Add vinegar and bring to a boil, uncovered and without stirring, for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add water, salt, bay leaves, and pepper corns and stir to combine. Continue to boil for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Lower heat, cover, and continue to cook for about 40 to 50 minutes or until meat is fork-tender and liquid is reduced.
  • Add sugar and stir. Continue to cook, uncovered, until mixture begins to render fat.
  • Sprinkle with fried garlic bits as desired and serve hot.


Allow the vinegar to boil uncovered and without stirring before adding the water to cook off the strong acid taste.
