Mashed Garlic with Pork Belly Slices?​ 美味蒜泥白肉

This dish is more like an appetizer, the regular Sichuanese version is hot and spicy, where the garlic are mashed for a mashed garlic sauce then pair with thin pork belly slices. So I make a little adjustment of my own for more flexibility and also suggestion of 2 types of serving methods. Method 1 is the common serving and method 2 is more towards the salad method. This is an idea of how to make this delicious dish, you could be more creative, add black fungus, roll with shredded carrot, and lots more possible combinations!
