Here’s something truly magnificent, and drool-worthy to be cooking up for this Chinese New Year!
Very few things can beat abalone during this festive season, and braised pork belly is nothing short of perfect to go with this. Cutting the pork belly into 2 inch cubes, we used the WMF Perfect Premium 4.5L Pressure Cooker to cook the meat, saving yourself time and hassle.
Plate the mushrooms, pork belly and abalone, and you’re ready to serve this reunion dinner course!
