Ha! you have the same slow cooker as me smile

Im not sure about putting it in the oven? Ive never done it, no idea if its 'allowed' or not.

You'll need to thicken the sauce with cornflour when its finished as you're doing it in the slow cooker, but thats easy enough.

Hope its nice!

Well i've done as you said but inthe slowcooker (just wanted to try it) im planning on crisping the crackling up at the end anyhow. Its smelling nice smile Can i put the crock pot from the slowcooker into the oven? Just to save dirtying another dish <lazy> Its this one

When I do the pork ribs with it, I marinade them in the powder and some cold water or orange juice, not loads of liquid but enough to cover the meat in a dish, then either put them in the slow cooker or a big pot, add sliced onions and garlic.

They come out well in the oven too, which would probably be best for pork belly. Just put the pork and liquid in a deep oven tray, arrange the onion slices over the top, swoosh it a bit so the liquid covers the lot and roast them slowly.

I think it might clash TBH

I think you could get a nice sauce from that powder though, ive used a similar one to do both chicken and pork ribs, it makes a lovely sauce IME. I dont just use it as a glaze, I make a sort of gravy out of it IYSWIM?

So could i put the belly pork marinaded in chinese powder in a s+s sauce or would the tastes clash? might just have a go with the chinese powder with some onions and ?? any ideas??

I usually just use the glaze for chicken breasts but the belly pork needed using so thought i'd have a go, as i didn't fancy a roast with it as we had one yesterday.

It would be tasty, but it wouldnt be like sweet and sour.

You need vinegar and sugar for sweet and sour

Do i just add water? I'm marinading some belly pork strips in it but i have some left so was going to try to make a sauce to go with it with some onions etc in. If i was to put peppers and pineapple in would it make a sweet and sour sauce? or is it a totally different thing?
TIA.
It looks like this powder
