Pics of Pork Belly ready to finish Fri, 11/12/10 5:17 PM (permalink)
Just pulled from the Smoker, Needs the Griddle to finish it
  Needless to say, this is seriously great eats, becoming quite the rage in high end restaurants, I'm trying it out, I need to improve on it!

      Yep Billy, crisp it on the grill, intense flavor, not salty like bacon, which it actually is, before curing!

        I'm becoming a big fan of pork belly.
         
        I had it at The Nook in West Los Angeles where they served it as a hunk about 2 inches by 3 inches by 2 inches.  It was not crispy at all and melted in your mouth.
         
        I believe it might have been braised in a sauce made with star anise which was served with it.  Whatever, it was quite good.
         
        It's showing up on a lot of menus here.

            Chinese 5 Spice!  That's probably what I had.  Succulent!

              Delicious...I love pork belly and have it frequently. I will cook it in some Asian manner or straight up smoked and BBQ'd.  I try for a nice smoky ring on the outside.
              I buy mine at either the Latin or Asian markets, which makes me wonder how it is used in Mexico?

                      Chef, did you just use the spice as a rub, or make a sauce, if so, care to share the recipe?
