1 kg pork belly – 1 quince
Preheat the oven to 180 °C top and bottom heat. Remove any bones from the pork belly if necessary. Score the skin in a crisscross pattern. Wash, peel and chop the quince. Place the pork belly in a roasting tin together with the stock from step 1 and the quince pieces. Cook in the oven for about 90 minutes, covered.

Remove the outer leaves of the red cabbage. First quarter the red cabbage, cut out the stalk and then cut into fine strips. Peel the beetroot and grate it coarsely with a box grater. Marinate the red cabbage and beetroot with Kikkoman Soy Sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey and cumin in a bowl. Wash and dry the dill and parsley, chop finely and mix into the salad.
600 g baby potatoes – 4 tsp salt
Wash the baby potatoes, place them in a pot of salted cold water and boil until soft. Drain the water and keep the potatoes covered and warm.
2 tbsp honey – 4 tbsp Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
Pour off the pork belly stock into a bowl and finely blend with the quince pieces. Set the resulting jus aside. Bake the pork belly in a roasting tin at 220 °C for about 10 minutes more. Mix the Kikkoman Soy Sauce and honey and brush the baked pork belly with it. Cut the pork belly into 4 equal portions and serve with the jus, potatoes and salad.
