Pork Belly Curry Udon Recipe

    Table of Contents


    • 400g pork belly, thinly sliced
    • 400g fresh udon noodles
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 onion, thinly sliced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
    • 2 carrots, julienned
    • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 2 tablespoons curry powder
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon mirin
    • 1 tablespoon sake (optional)
    • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 can (400ml) coconut milk
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Spring onions, thinly sliced, for garnish
    • Sesame seeds, for garnish
    • Red chili flakes, for garnish (optional)


    Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the sliced pork belly and cook until browned and crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the pork belly from the skillet and set aside.

    In the same skillet, add a bit more oil if needed. Sauté the sliced onion, minced garlic, and grated ginger until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

    Add the julienned carrots and sliced bell pepper to the skillet and cook for another 3-4 minutes until slightly softened.

    Sprinkle the curry powder over the vegetables and stir well to coat.

    Return the cooked pork belly to the skillet. Stir in the soy sauce, mirin, and sake (if using). Cook for 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

    Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

    Stir in the coconut milk and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let the curry simmer for another 5 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.

    While the curry is simmering, cook the fresh udon noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water to prevent them from sticking together.

    Divide the cooked udon noodles among serving bowls. Ladle the pork belly curry over the noodles, making sure to distribute the vegetables and pork evenly.

    Garnish with thinly sliced spring onions, sesame seeds, and red chili flakes (if using).

    Serve the Pork Belly Curry Udon hot and enjoy!

    Note: Feel free to customize this recipe by adding your favorite vegetables or adjusting the level of spiciness to suit your taste. You can also substitute the pork belly with chicken, beef, or tofu if desired.
