Pineapple Pork- Adobo Pork with a Twist

I love Hot Thai Kitchen.  Pai is such a sweet person with lots of videos to intice you into make Thai food.  She has other dishes on there as well but primarily Thai.  

I bought some pork belly recently for the first time.  I made it two ways.  I tried Char Sui which was a fail.  It was okay but not what I had envisioned.  Then I made this dish by h Pai.  WE LOVED IT!  Will definitely make this again.  Here is a link to her recipe.  I am putting it on my blog with my changes.

Pork Adobo with Pineapple

2 lb pork belly, cut into large cubes

1 onion, cut into strips

6 cloves garlic, chopped

½ cup coconut milk

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon black pepper, ground

2 bay leaves

2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into small bite-sized pieces (see note)

green onions for garnish, optional

Saute pork cubes.  Once browned, remove from pot and add onions to auste until golden.  Add in garlic and then coconut milk.  Cook one minute.  Add in soy sauce, vinegar, pinch of salt, pepper, bay leaves and soy sauce.  Stir.  Finally add the pork back in. Cover and cook for about 1 hour, check.  If too much liquid, leave top off. Continue to cook about another hour until pork is tender.

In a separate pot caramelize pineapple in a pan.  At the end, add in pineapple.  When serving, garnish with green onion.
