Ingredients You'll Need
1 whole chicken fryer (about 3.5 lbs), cut into serving pieces
1 pack (about 2.5 lbs) pork belly, cut into 2-inch cubes
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce, plus 2 extra tablespoons to taste
2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
4 pieces bay leaves
3 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons whole peppercorns
cooking oil for frying
1 cup broth for more sauce, if desired
1 can quail eggs, drained (optional)
Combine 1st 8 ingredients (using only 1 tablespoon of minced garlic in marinade) in a ziplock bag, mixing well; refrigerate overnight (or at least 2 hours marinating). Strain pork and chicken pieces, reserving marinade. Saute remaining 1 tablespoon minced garlic in hot oil in nonstick frying pan. Panfry pork and chicken pieces until golden. Transfer fried chicken and pork pieces in a saucepan and add marinade. Cover and cook over high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook covered for about 45 minutes or until meats are well cooked. Remove cover, add 1 cup broth (if more sauce is desired, and add salt and pepper to taste) and continue cooking till sauce is fairly reduced. You may add drained quail eggs.
