Simple Japanese one-plate

Simple Japanese one-plate

Well, Japanese is may be a little to much but at least it's Japanese taste and local products! I don't like fatty meat but I must say that pork belly is always perfect to flavor simple vegetables. It's very easy to find thin slices of pork belly in Japan, they ressemble a lot bacon slices. They are perfect for cocotte cooking for the bottom layer. Once they are cooked and the fat has melted it is a perfect base for cooking vegetables. It goves an incredible taste. Most of the time I use it mainly as flavoring and don't eat the meat myself (A. does) but when the fat has completely disappeared and the meat gets crunchy then I don't mind eating it! I actually find it quite good!!! It's nice also because it's perfect any time with seasonal vegetables. This time I cooked capsicums and in the end of the cooking added green beans cut in 3cm bites and finally deglazed in soya sauce. Delicious with plain white rice!
