Gourmet Retailer of the Year Award 2022

Braised Pork Belly



  • 800g free range pork belly, (cut into 3-4 cm thick pieces)
  • 4-5 slices of ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 star anise
  • ½ cup Sherry vinegar or Chinese cooking wine
  • 3 tbsp organic Tamari soy sauce
  • ½ tbsp dark soy sauce (for colouring, optional)
  1. Parboiling – Boil water in a saucepan. Put pork into saucepan and boil for 5 minutes. Discard the hot water and wash off the gunk of pork with cold water.
  2. Braising – Place pork belly, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sherry vinegar, ginger, sugar, and star anise in the saucepan. Barely cover the meat with water. Lower heat to simmer, cover with a lid, and continue braising for about 60 minutes.
  3. Caramelizing – Turn to high heat, take the cover off and let liquid evaporate and thicken. Turn and mix the pork to make sure the meat is covered evenly. You should end up with a thick, glistening sauce that covers the tender pork belly.

About Ryan’s Grocery

Ryan’s Grocery is Singapore’s only full-service organic butchery and allergen-friendly specialist online grocery store. The company’s journey began in July 2015 when founders Sebastian and Wendy Chia learnt of their son’s – Ryan – intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They searched local markets for products and produce, and even made personal trips internationally to look for a range of dietary items to support his needs.

It was then they saw a demand for such a specialty grocery store and Ryan’s Grocery was born. Ryan’s Grocery now services the local community, discerning shoppers and those with dietary intolerances with an all-inclusive range of organic meats from our specialty butchery, gluten-free products, and other related items with grocery delivery options.

In December 2019, the brand launched its first overseas flagship store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its flagship outlet in Singapore with ‘Ryan’s Grocery’ and ‘Ryan’s Kitchen’ opened in Great World in December 2020, spanning a total of 4,200 sq ft. In 2022, Ryan’s Grocery was awarded “Gourmet Retailer of the Year” and “Best Meat & Seafood Retailer” in Singapore by World Gourmet Summit & Tatler Asia respectively.
