Recipe of the week: Phuket pork belly stew • Pork belly is one of my all-time favourite cuts of meat, says Dan Toombs: when cooked right, it is wonderfully tender and juicy. The key with this dish is to simmer the pork belly until it is fall-apart tender; otherwise it will be chewy and a bit of a let-down. The long simmering time also adds to the amazing flavour. This dish is great served with jasmine rice.
