15 Pork Belly Recipes

What Is Pork Belly?

Pork belly is a cut of meat that comes from the belly of a pig. It’s the same part of the pig that bacon is made from, but pork belly isn’t cured or smoked like bacon usually is. It’s a thick, fatty piece of meat that has layers of fat and meat. Pork belly is popular in many cuisines around the world because it’s flavorful and can be cooked in many different ways.

It’s a popular ingredient in dishes like bacon, porchetta, and BBQ pork belly.

How To Buy The Perfect Pork Belly?

The slices are made up of fat and meat layers; if you pay attention to this, you can have the best pork belly. Try to find those with an even fat-to-meat ratio; if there is a little more meat than fat, that’s even better. The fat gives this cut its incredible richness and flavor, but you don’t want to “swim” in it.

Ways To Cook Pork Belly

Pork belly offers versatility in cooking, yielding some of the most delicious recipes. Here are a few fantastic ideas:

  1. Oven Roasting: Prepare it in the oven alongside your favorite side dish for a succulent meal.
  2. Pan-Frying: Achieve crispy perfection on the stovetop and serve with a delectable sauce.
  3. Air Fryer: Try cooking it in an air fryer, brushing on some BBQ sauce for that irresistible tang.
  4. Grilling Option: Opt for the grill on warmer days, imparting that irresistible smoky char.
