  • How do you cook Pork Belly?

    OK first time ever I got a slab of pork belly in my CSA bag. I was ECSTATIC, however, I have no idea what to do with it... Should I put it in the crock pot or pan fry?

    I bbq'd mine and it was fantastic!

    But yeah, you can also pan fry it or crock pot it.

    Just treat it like a regular piece of pork.

      Hmmm it seems kinda thick for pan frying?? Do I just throw it in the pan? I do need to use the crockpot for something starting in the next hour ahhhh. I could cook it overnight instead of right now...

        You could always cut it up into Pork Belly Bites and pan fry it that
        way?

        And yeah, you just throw it in the pan. I did have to cut mine when I pan
        fried it once because it was ginormous, but basically that's all I did, or the bites
        thing....

          I like to score the skin, rub garlic and salt into it, then lay it on a rack above some roughly chopped onion, carrot, parsnip and beetroot, and a couple of garlic bulbs, dot the surface with some dripping or lard or tallow, then slow roast in the oven until all the skin is crispy, the fat has melted into the vegetables below and cooked them through, and the meat is tender enough to melt in the mouth ....

              Also... if you partially freeze it to make slicing easier, you can slice it and fry it like bacon.

                Yep that's the way, or just don't bother with the rack
