Cooking Tips:

  1. Pan Frying: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook the slices until the fat renders and the meat is golden and crispy, usually about 3-4 minutes per side. No need to add oil, as the fat in the belly will render out.
  2. Grilling: Grill the slices over medium heat, turning frequently, until crispy. This method adds a lovely smoky flavor.
  3. Oven Roasting: Lay the slices on a rack over a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400°F oven until crispy, about 15-20 minutes.

Recipe Ideas:

  1. Crispy Side Pork with Maple Glaze: Pan-fry the slices until crispy, then brush with a maple syrup glaze in the last few minutes of cooking for a sweet and savory treat.
  2. Spiced Pork Belly Tacos: Season the slices with a blend of chili powder, cumin, and garlic, then cook until crispy. Serve in tacos with avocado, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
  3. Asian-Inspired Pork Belly Stir-Fry: Cut the cooked belly into bite-sized pieces and stir-fry with vegetables, soy sauce, and a touch of honey. Serve over rice for a quick and flavorful meal.
  4. Roasted Pork Belly with Apple Cider Reduction: Roast the slices as directed, then serve with a reduction of apple cider, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a touch of butter, creating a perfect autumn dish.
