I was digging in the freezer this morning and found a (small) piece of (boneless) pork belly I still had lying around.

I decided to make Crispy Pork Belly with it!

Pork Belly is a cheap cut of meat and very delicious! And since I learned about the recipe I'm about to show you, I never fail to get crispy skin and it's super easy.

All you need is an oven (or a grill that can close).

I started by defrosting the belly by thawing it in cold water for 3-4 hours.

I then firmly dried it and it looked like this.

I got a little bit sunflower oil and rubbed it all over the skin of the pork belly covering it lightly.

I added a light coating of salt all over the skin.

I placed the pork belly on a rack and on top of a baking tray I filled with 1 cm (0,39 inch) of water.

I then placed the pork belly in the oven between 160-180 degrees Celsius.

It will take between 2-3 hours before it's done. All you have to do is wait until the skin is crispy. Here's the video of the end result!



Also this time it was super tasty and crispy!

If you try this recipe I hope you enjoy it!

I hope it is tender because you didn't boiled it first with seasonings.

Never heard about boiling it before. I'll check it out.

It was super tender. I guess most things will be after 2,5 hours in the oven.

Pork belly is very popular in Korea. I roast it, but a lot of people just fry it.

That’s some major protein right there!! 💯
