Simple yet delicious ~ Braised Pork Belly with Eggs :-)

As you know, my principle of making dishes & bakes is SIMPLE. Thus, again, my dinner tonight is a simple one:
1)Fried omelette with Chinese chives (韭菜炒蛋)
2)Fried cabbage with dried shrimps (虾米炒卷心菜)
3)Braised Pork Belly (卤三层肉)

Braised Pork Belly with Eggs recipe from Lydia

2 head garlic, crushed a bit
2 bulb shallots, sliced
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
1 cinnamon stick (肉桂)
2 star anises (八角)
3 cloves (丁香)
1 tbsp sugar (more if you want a sweeter taste)
2 tbsp cooking oil
1-2 cups hot water (according to your preference if you want to have more gravy or not)
Salt to taste
few hard-boiled eggs (optional)

1) Wash & cut the pork.
2) Heat up the wok with cooking oil, add in garlic, shallot, sugar, cinnamon stick and star anise. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
