When I began my #PorkBellyCrawl, I’d only tasted pork belly once, and had no idea how versatile it could be. Smoked, Grilled, Deep Fried, Oven Roasted, Braised, Crackling, Pan-Fried, and Fire Roasted; I was lucky enough to taste more pork belly dishes than I even imagined existed and I’m excited to share my favorites with you today.
Here are just a few of the delicious dishes that we enjoyed for our #PorkBellyCrawl:
My favorite dish was the Pork Belly Taco at Salty Sow; fork tender strips of smoked pork belly, fresh arugula, feta cheese, and a soft fried egg are wrapped in a buttery flour tortilla. We ordered our tacos with a side of duck fat fries and it was a happy hour not to be soon forgotten!
I could hardly wait to recreate the taco at home, using some of our favorite flavors in a sweet and spicy marinade. (I very rarely cook a meat without a marinade, it adds so much flavor for minimal effort!) I knew that bacon could be grilled, so I used that same process with extra thin strips of the pork belly. (Smoking the meat would be delicious as well, if you have a little more time and you’re willing to wait.) Start to finish the grilling was done in just about 5 minutes, and it’s hard to beat that for convenience!
