DescriptionFresh pork belly is succulent, richly flavourful and is often served in small portions.
Juicy fat layers wrap around the meat and while there isn’t much meat, once cooked it becomes tender and the fat melts-in-your-mouth.
There are multiple ways to cook pork belly if you aren’t going to use it to make homemade bacon. Common methods include roasting, smoking, and searing and can be used as the main feature or enhancement to any menu.
Oven roast it for a crispy, crunchy skin and juicy and tender meat, and braise the meat for that extra caramelized crunch with an inside that melts in your mouth.
Pork belly is at its best and is most tender when prepared using a slow cooking method, such as braising.
