  • 1 1/2 pounds of fresh pork belly cut into 2-inch cubes
  • Salt & pepper
  • Brown sugar
  • Grapeseed oil
  • 3 TBS honey
  • 3 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 TBS chili with garlic sauce
  • 2 TBS scallions
  • 3/4 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • For Jalapeno Cole Slaw
  • 1 large jalapeno sliced thin
  • 1/2 pound or more pound bagged coleslaw mix
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 2 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili with garlic sauce


  • Pat your pork belly dry. (if your belly has really thick skin, you may want to score the top first) Season with salt, pepper and just a sprinkle of brown sugar on all sides. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Add to marinade and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
  • remove from marinade, reserve excess marinade (place in refrigerator) and preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Heat a pan, add in just a bit of oil and sear until a nice crust forms on each side. Yes it will smoke a bit, just keep going, the taste is worth the smoke.
  • Once you have a beautiful crust on all sides, place belly in a dish with just a covering of stock and roast, tented in foil for 2-3 hours or until done to your liking. Check on it every 30 minutes and add just a bit more stock if necessary to keep pork from burning the dish.
  • Remove from oven, place pork belly bites in a pan, cover with reserved marinade and simmer until the mixture is bubbly and the belly is coated with the sauce.
  • For Jalapeno Cole Slaw
  • Combine dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously until emulsified. Taste and adjust for sweetness and heat) Just before serving, toss coleslaw & jalapenos with the dressing. let sit for 5 minutes. Plate, top with pork belly & serve.
