PORK BELLY!

Are you excited? Well, you should be! Pork belly is fabulous when cooked the right way. I’ve never been able to cook it the right way. Bummer. I’ve tried and failed at least 4-5 times. But chin up, I’m trying again. I found a wonderful and EASY recipe on a lovely woman named Bee’s website, Rasa Malaysia. I love her website. Go check her website out for the recipe, and TONS of other awesome recipes, I’ve never been disappointed by her recipes (I even have her book).

Here are some pictures of the belly in the works

So pretty. See the spice on the side?

That's a lot of salt for one little belly!

All ready to go. My oven element looks like purple neon. Cool!

So I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I didn’t use the garlic. I just wanted my belly to taste like pork. Nothing against garlic of course (I love the stuff, can’t get enough of it….well except in pork belly I guess), but I like my pork belly simple. I did use the Chinese 5-spice though, that stuff is magic!

Looking good, only 40 min to go!
