Chinese Cuisine - Steamed pork with millet

A Chinese classic, tender pork belly marinated in a spice mixed and steamed with millet to absorb up all the juices.
Start with a piece of pork belly with a meat to fat ratio of approximately 1:1
 For this recipe, I decided to experiment with this pre-packaged spice and millet mix that can be found at most Asian grocery stores.

 Slice your pork belly up into approximately 2" cubes
 Empty packet of spice and millet mix over, add 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 1 table spoon of Chinese cooking wine, 1 tablespoon of soy-sauce, 1 table spoon of Sesame oil and just a pinch of pepper.
 Give it a good mix until all the meat is well coated. Let meat marinate in the fridge (cover with cling wrap) for approximately 2 hours or overnight before cooking.
 Julienne a carrot and sprinkle over the top before steaming for an hour
Finished product sitting in my steamer. It is a complete 1 dish meal for the winter. Enjoy!
