Salted Egg Pork Belly

Salted Egg Pork Belly is a recipe of crispy deep fried battered pork belly tossed in a sweet savoury spicy sauce made with salted duck egg yolks. Combining these two ingredients, it’s simply a match made in heaven.


Our recipe today is one of those freestyle things we do here at Ang Sarap but today instead of making it with leftovers pantry items, it was sort of planned but never had an idea of the recipe yet when I bought its ingredients, just the concept. I know this has been made in the past by many chefs, but I never cheeked the recipes out so whatever I had here will have no influence or what so ever. What I did though to come up with this dish is basically reuse my recipe for sweet and sour pork combined with my experience on cooking salted duck egg sauce which we had tried so many times in the past, where we used it in potatoes, crab, chicken, prawn and even long beans. The result was this nice, crispy and juicy pork belly coated in an umami filled semi sweet, creamy and savoury salted duck egg sauce which you can enjoy as a main dish, a side dish or even as a pulutan.

    From the ingredients, looks like a win-win appetizer while waiting for the 2 hands to be aligned upward.

    Hmm, I wonder how I could make this vegan… I might be beyond my reach, but I’m so intrigued!

    You can buy factory-made salted egg yolk sauce in packs or bottles at the shops here. The craze has fizzled out quite a bit now – at one time, it was salted egg EVERYTHING!

  5. So saw salted duck eggs in our Asian market last time I was there. I had no idea it carried them. This sounds unbelievably good, a Raymund! Definitely one to try.

    I made salted chicken egg yolks and wasn’t crazy about them–but a good recipe might have made a difference. I love pork belly any ways shape or form!
