Pork belly recipes with Asian and Chinese flavours as well as pork belly dumplings and slow roasted pork belly with crispy crackling.
Pork belly is the most delicious cut of the pig - after all, it's what they make bacon from! You can eat it on its own, with gravy or sliced in sandwiches.
Cocido Madrileno is a meaty Spanish stew with chickpeas that resembles the French pot-au-feu. It's an easy recipe to make in a pressure cooker.
This dish will impress your family or your dinner-party guests. A slow-roasted pork belly that gives you beautiful succulent moist tender pork with light crisp crackling - extremely easy and quick preparation time. You can even prepare it ahead by slow-roasting the day before and finish cooking just before serving, with a choice of accompaniments and finishing sauces.
Adapted from a microwave recipe. Everyone loves this as the meat is so tender and tasty. I always have to make a triple batch, so there are leftovers. Leftovers freeze well and reheat easily in the microwave.
For this recipe you can use pork belly slices (cubed) or pork pieces also. Note: make up 1 cup of stock as you may need to add extra fluid if needed, but the end result should be lovely sticky and melt in the mouth meat with very little sauce left over. I like to serve this with steamed rice and some green veges or a light salad.
