Another popular pork dish in Hoa Binh is boiled pork belly. When I heard the name, I was also quite curious, I brought it back and boiled it, the processing is very strange compared to normal meat dishes. The meat for this dish must be selected from free-range pigs, the meat is firm and low in fat, and then it is burned, where it is shaved, it does not have to be pre-processed, marinated, and then burned.

Each piece of meat is thinly sliced, presented on an eye-catching banana leaf, dipped with roasted salt and crushed roasted doi seeds, both sweet, fleshy, fragrant, very rich.

The chubby young bees are carefully removed from the nest, then washed with cold water and then dried. Uncle fried the fragrant fat, then put the bees on the island first, until the bees were golden, then poured them on a plate. Uncle continued to stir-fry the cooked bamboo shoots and then put the bees on the island together, seasoning and adding spices to taste.
