One-Pot No Recipe

Pork squash soup/stew. Not sure the origins of the dish. The Mouse suspects (but not confirmed), Filipino in origin.

From the farmers market.

Chinese Squash

From the grocery store.

Thick Cut Pork Belly

Think really thick bacon slices (raw ingredient).

Everyone into the Pot

Pork, squash, ear tree fungus, dried shiitake mushroom, salt, water, shoyu, splash of Crown Royal Apple Whiskey (Hee hee).

Braise for approximately 30-40 minutes.

Liquid kinda evaporated, not much soup nor “stew”. Still have a small winter melon in the refridge and half of the pork in the freezer for another try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
