  • Automatic program for Pork Belly. Complete step 1 of this recipe then Select: Automatic programs> Meat> Pork> Pork Belly and follow the prompts.
  • The pork re-heats very well. Select: Fan Grill at 200°C for 15–20 minutes on shelf position 2.
  • Bao or steam buns can be purchased from Asian grocers or supermarkets.
