  • 2 lbs pork belly cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp salt


  • In a bowl, season pork with the salt.
  • Over high heat, preheat a wide, thick-bottomed pan. Arrange pork belly on the pan in a single layer. Cook, turning occasionally, for about 7 to 10 minutes or until pork begins to render fat.
  • When the pork has released oil, decrease heat to low. Cover and continue to cook, turning occasionally, until pork pieces are golden brown and reduced in size.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove from pan and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve with spicy vinegar dip or store for future use.
