Pork belly

Recommended Posts

Just ordered some from my farmer. What do I do with it? Slice and season and cook like bacon? Will it already come sliced? Or will it just be a chunk of meat?

I picked up my order and its sliced already. Guess i'll use it like bacon.

Did they cure it for you? They rarely slice it if they don't cure it and if they did cure it, they probably used sugar. At least that is the case here where I live and I believe most areas.

No sugar. I did verify that with the farmer before I ordered. Last time I ordered the wrong kind from him and it did have Sugar :( Maybe its not sliced. Its still frozen but it sure did look sliced to me. We'll see.

I too am curious about crock pot pork belly. I've had good luck curing it myself with salt then, roasting, slicing and baking but I love my crock pot.

How was the crackling though?

I cooked mine in the slow cooker once and the fat all melted away so there was no crackling to get crispy.

The meat was delicious though.
