Take Your Best Shot: Chinese ‘red-cooked’ pork

The photographer: Nate Simon of Sacramento

The dish: This is my take on Chinese “red-cooked” pork. Pork belly was brined for three days, then cooked sous vide at 140 degrees. The meat was chopped, and sautéed with green onion, carrot and garlic, and finished with oyster sauce, rice wine, soy and star anise-infused caramel.
