  • Rice: The short-grain rice is stickier than the long-grain variety, which is what we use in this recipe. We also like short grain because it’s the kind that absorbs the flavors more.
  • Pork belly: The pork belly is cut into small pieces so can render the fat quickly and melt into the rice.
  • Oil: You can use any oil, but olive oil is a healthy choice that provides additional nutrition.
  • Water: The amount of water you need to add depends on how moist the vegetables are, and how tightly you’re closing the lid. Start with 1 cup of water and add more if needed.
