2 pounds of pork belly, skin on, cut into 1/2-inch, rectangular bite size pieces
1 bunch of scallions, the white part
5 cloves of minced garlic
1 cup of dried fried shallots
8 minced dried shrimp
6 minced dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in water overnight

3 tablespoons of rice wine
A pinch of white pepper
A pinch of five spice powder
A pinch of salt

In a pan, add the pork belly, without oil because pork belly already has a lot of oil in it. Then stir fry in high heat until they are golden brown and almost crispy for about 5 minutes. Add 1 bunch of scallions (the white part), and stir until the aroma comes out. Then 5 cloves of minced garlic, and also cook until fragrant. Now introduce 1 cup of dried fried shallots, and mix thoroughly. At this time, we add 8 minced dried shrimp, 6 minced dried shiitake mushrooms (soaked in water overnight), and stir-fry for another 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar of white sugar and stir-fry for a few minutes (this will give it a beautiful color to the pork belly). Then introduce 6 tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of rice wine, a pinch of white pepper, a pinch of five-spice powder, a pinch of salt, 2 cups of hot water, and 2 star anises to the pan. Then add the 6 boiled eggs. Mix well. Cover the lid. Turn to low heat and simmer for another 40 minutes. Turn the eggs occasionally.
