A few notes on cooking pork belly:

  • It should be roasted on a rack in an oven low and slow, with a deep drip pan that will collect the massive amount of oil.
  • Pork belly can also be braised in a pan.

    The skin is best when crispy, so after slow-cooking the meat should rest and then it can be seared or pan fried for ultimate texture and taste.
