On the Menu: Mapo Pork Belly

Traditional Sichuan Mapo Tofu is a famous Chinese dish that happens to be one of my favorite things to eat.  It’s spicy, hot, aromatic, tender and sometimes numbing!  Now that i’m opening my own place, I just had to put something Mapo on the menu.  In my version, I dispensed with the ground pork and upped the ante with pork belly.  I use a tweaked traditional Mapo sauce, braise the pork belly, and lay them on top of rice (or your carb of choice) and a bed of silken tofu.
