Boiling the Pork Belly and Shallots
1. In a large pot, bring water to boil and add your shallots and 1 tbsp salt.
2. Add your pork belly and cook over medium-high heat for 20 minutes.
Frying the Tofu
1. In a separate pan, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan by 1" in height.
2. Wait for the oil to be hot and add your tofu. Do not overcrowd the pan.
3. We want to lightly fry each side until golden. This will take 8-10 minutes per batch.
4. Remove the fried tofu and allow to cool on a plate with paper towel.
Preparing the Pork Belly
1. Once the pork is done cooking, drain the water and allow them to rest in cool water to prevent browning.
2. Once cooled, pat them dry and slice into thin pieces.
Preparing the Fermented Shrimp Paste - Mam Tom Sauce
1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients listed under “Fermented Shrimp Paste - Mam Tom Sauce”.
Serving the Dish
1. To serve, assemble your bowl with greens, noodles, fried tofu, pork belly slices, and long string bean.
2. Ladle on the fermented shrimp paste sauce and enjoy.
