err.. how come my cubes becomes hard and tough?
How to make it soft and juicy on the inside?
Beside the pork belly meat what other less fat meat should I use?

hard and tough is how u fried it at the first place...if i am not mistaken, u have to leave it for a while for the pork to cool down, then it will be soft..then u can start cooking it...

other part also can be used...u can try using lean meat...or pork ribs meat..

before you cut them into cubes, you can try to pound the meat with the back of the cleaver or the meat pounder (square cube hammer thingy with some blunt spikes)..

Alternatively... if u want a really tender pork... go and get yourself a bottle of 'papaya seasonings' ... white botl with red label (papaya picture).. available in Giant Hypermarket..... ;)
