  • 200g pork belly shabu shabu*
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1/2 of yellow/red bell pepper (optional)
  • 1 tbsp spring onions, chopped (optional)
  • 2 tbsps cooking oil
  • Rice

*We bought “Porkee Frozen Pork – Belly Sukiyaki (400g)” for S$7.70 at NTUC. My hubby likes pork belly because it is a fattier part of the pig, however your toddler might prefer other parts, such as the collar.

Ingredients: Marinade Sauce / Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin^
  • 1 tbsp sake^
  • 2 tsps sugar
  • 2 tbsps water

^ You can replace mirin or sake with 1 tbsp of Hua Tiao cooking wine.

Preparation Steps

  1. Cook the rice.
  2. Cut onion into slices.
  3. Cut bell peppers into slices. (optional)
  4. Chop spring onions into small bits. (optional)
  5. Beat the eggs.
  6. Prepare Marinade sauce.
  7. Slice the pork strips into half.
  8. I only use 1/4 of the marinade sauce to marinade the pork slices. The rest is used as seasoning during cooking. Marinade for at least half an hour or overnight in the fridge.


  1. Heat up the oil and fry the onion till fragrant and slightly soft.
  2. Add in the bell peppers and stir fry until they are soft.
  3. Add the pork belly strips one by one and spread them out in the pan. This is to prevent the meat from clumping together.
  4. Fry for a few minutes till the meat is about 80% cooked.
  5. Add the seasoning/marinade, stir fry and mix well. Simmer for a minute.
  6. Add the beaten eggs and spring onions and simmer for another minute.
  7. Pour all on top of your steaming hot rice and serve immediately.
