Houston’s Pork Belly

3+ lbs of skinless pork belly
1 tablespoon salt per pound of pork
1 tablespoon sugar per pound of pork
Black pepper


  1. Season the belly with the salt and sugar. Hit it with a couple turns of freshly ground black pepper. Let it sit overnight, covered, in the fridge.

  2. Pre-heat oven to 450°F degrees, then place the seasoned belly in a roasting pan and into the oven for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 275°F and cook for 1-2 hours until tender but not mushy.

  3. Let the belly cool to room temperature, then wrap up tightly in plastic and put it in the fridge until it’s thoroughly chilled (1-2 days).

    Slice it into nice, thick slabs, then either brown in oil or warm it through with a stock or water in a covered pan.

 Serve and as always – ENJOY!

I have ordered sandwich trays several times from Houston's and have never been disappointed. Everyone that works there is super friendly and helpful as well. Yesterday they went above and beyond to make sure my order was ready in time for the baby shower. They said they may have a hard time getting the order ready in time because of the were super busy with other orders. Not only was the order ready, but it was EARLY and it was so early they had to unlock the door to let my daughter in to pick it up!! THANK YOU!!!!
