Inspired by my daughter, she was telling me since last week that she’s craving for pork belly cooked in other way and not as her father used to cook it. So I did it now, really an experiment gain in my kitchen. I got this 5oog squid heads yesterday from Vietnamese shop for only 2.89 euros. Was about to look for vegetables in which I can cook with, but I came to this adia why not cook it with pork belly!
This recipe is good for 4 people:-)

* some Juniper Berries, dried
* 2 Star Anise

Then pour soup stock or water cover and cook until pork is tender. When nearly done add squid heads for about 3 to 5 minute cs. Serve with rice. Do not over cook the squids. The meat can get tough!
