No offense bacon, but it’s time to move out of the way because this pork belly is about to blow your mind. We’re featuring this indulgent dish because it’s beyond brag-worthy, and all you have to do is try it for yourself to understand why.
What is pork belly?
Essentially, pork belly is uncured, un-sliced, and un-smoked bacon. It comes from the underside of the pig, also where bacon comes from, but instead of being sliced, cured, and smoked, it stands alone as a thick cut of meat.
Pork Belly is popular in Chinese and Korean dishes, and we’ve taken added some Asian flair to our very own:
We add Tamari Soy Sauce, a traditional Japanese soy sauce which is slightly thicker and less salty than traditional soy sauce. It’s also gluten-free and great to use in dishes for those who suffer from gluten-intolerance. We also include ginger and scallions to kick up the Asian flair.
We balance this dish’s savory flavors with honey, ginger, cinnamon, and orange zest. Our perfectly parried vegetables of choice include snow peas, shiitake mushrooms, and Chinese eggplant. Finally, the slow braised pork belly is complete with a side of delicious basmati rice.
We invite you to take a break from the kitchen labor and indulge in this salty, sweet, and insanely tasty meal. For more pork belly recipes click here.
