Slow Cooked Pork Belly



  • Cut the pork belly into finger sized pieces
  • Place a medium sized pot on the stove at high heat and add the chicken stock and the remaining ingredients and give it a good swirl
  • Once boiling add the pork belly
  • Lower the heat and cover with lid, allow to simmer for about 2 hours
  • After 2 hours, strain and chop the pork into bite sized chunks
  • Heat up olive oil in a medium sized frying pan and add the pork
  • Allow pork to fry up, it will look floppy and flubbery at first but be patient.
  • Keep turning the pork so it becomes browned on all sides
  • It may start to crackle and pop, I used this splatter screen to avoid pork belly flying all over the stove
  • Once browned add the soy or tamari or coconut aminos and the remaining ingredients.
  • Continue to fry, you may need to lower the temp occasionally if its crackling too much but increase it again to get the pork nice an crispy.
  • I had to lower the temp and then increase several times in order to get the pork belly just right
  • Once its dark, sticky and a little bit crispy it's good to go!
