What To Do
Lightly toast the spices in a pan until fragrant. Place in a pestle and mortar and allow to cool. Once cooled pound into a powder.
Mix the pork belly in a bowl with the spice powder, date syrup, soy sauce and garlic cloves and set aside.
Heat a large pot and place a little peanut oil and then place the pork belly in skin side down and sear until golden. Then add the coconut water and mix. Place the lid on the pot (leaving a little crack open) and simmer on a low heat for 3hrs, stirring every 30mins.
Serve with rice and fried greens.
