Salt and Pepper Fried Pork

So, there I was, staring at a pack of thinly sliced pork belly, dreaming about bacon, chicharon, lechon kawali and Hana’s pork senbei. It’s enough to get a girl in the mood to experiment.

Pork! Crispeh!

The pork belly was actually for samgyupsal, but I was hungry and we didn’t have lettuce or other samgyupsal fixings in the house so I figured I could use it for something else. As mentioned, I was dreaming about bacon and pork senbei. Plus, you can’t go wrong with frying pork, right?

It looks so much like bacon, doesn’t it? <3

It’s simple enough. Lay the pork strips on a board. Dust liberally with rock salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Fry.

+ Salt & Pepper!

Listen to the sputter of the fat as the pork makes contact. See the meat brown gently, until it darkens to a crackling crisp. Flip to repeat the process. Drain on paper towels and try not to drool.

Serve with a mix of soy sauce and vinegar. And rice. Loads of it. Crunch, crunch, crunch. Aren’t simple experiments wonderful?

    I am so trying this soon…I love buying this type of “bacon cut” pork belly but I usually do a Korean pork preparation with it. This simple, straightforward prep looks delicious though!

      I’m looking for a decent Korean pork recipe for it too, since the samgyupsal recipe I tried before isn’t as nice as I wanted. I’ll be sure to check your archives later nga 😀

    Hello! I referred you to GMA News Online. They asked me about Bento and told them you were my Philippine Bento inspiration. LOL!
