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

Directions:

  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!
