These recipes are from Mangalitsa Chef.
The first originally came entitled "Hoi Sin Glazed Mangalitsa Pork Belly" -- but then, Mangalitsas are pigs, so there's no need to say "pork", right?
You'll want to make these if you are making his Mangalitsa belly waffles - the belly goes in the waffle, and the syrup on top of it.
We'll be getting photos made of this stuff.
