Do you need blanched pork belly
Because there will be some residual blood in the pork belly, the taste of the pork belly directly fried will not be too good. Before frying, blanching can remove the blood foam from the pork belly, which will make the pork belly taste better. When blanching pork belly, it is best to pour cold water into the pot. This way, the meat will gradually become ripe during the blanching process, making it easier to blanch the blood foam from the pork belly.
