The pork belly should be tied in straws to help fix the shape during cooking. Thus the final presentation of the dish is more appealing.
Chef Recommendation

Oyster Sauce used in cooking Dong Po Pork brings out the umami taste of the pork. and contributes toa much more sophisticated flavour. Chinkiang Vinegar elevates the aroma of the pork and offer a less greasy mouth feel.
