    Magnificent! Cheap as chips with a bit of pork belly. Works well in oven or a slow cooker, easy and so flavoursome.

    Really lovely. Very tender and sweetly sticky. How to make a cheap cut of meat into something special Will definitely be making these again!!!

    I looked at others reviews before making this and reduced the sweetness a little. Also used my slow cooker on medium for 5 hours and it was delicious. The pork remained juicy and sweet. Will definitely make again.

    Love this recipe! I’ve made it countless times since finding it I did modify the slow cooker time to one hour on low, then one hour on high

    Very sweet but very nice. I cooked the pork in the slowcooker for 7 hours instead but it gave the same results. I made the glaze at the same time I pit thr meat in the slow cooker and just left it all until the evening. All i had to do when we wanted dinner was take thr pork out of the slowcooker, fry the meat a bit and and put on the glaze for 5mins while in the pan. While the glaze was on I did micro rice. Easy no fuss in the evening I like! It might be too sweet for some so I'd suggest maybe turning this into something like duck pancakes with cucumber and spring onions. 🤔 Or steamed buns.

    It was pretty good. Had some difficulties with the souse and I didn't use it in the end and it was still pretty good.

    Skipped the spicy, since we wanted something sweet. It turned out really good. I had to change pork belly for loin, since belly was nowhere to be found in my area. That made it a little dry. I would stick to belly if you can find it.

    I have made this dish so many times missing out an ingredient that I couldn't get my hands on here or there. Made it this evening with everything included (might have gone to 2 supermarkets just to get it all 😂) and it was incredible, the best one i've made yet!
