    Pork belly wasn't a good substitute

    Made this for dinner last night with modifications: Used 1/2 cup water (instead of 1 cup), also used brown sugar and miso subs. After the pork was done I thought the sauce was super watery so I took the pork out and reduced the sauce further. The pork was a little dry and tough but I think that had to do with my pork, not the recipe. Would prefer a thicker sauce.

    Pg. 188 The sauce is the star here with a lovely umami, smoky, anisey flavour, but the meat should be seared in small batches before the garlic and ginger go in so that is caramelizes. Then add about 3/4 of the water she says and simmer uncovered until it reduces a little bit. Overall good, but needs the noted modifications. Also, double to serve 4 with rice and a vegetable side.
