Glazed Teriyaki Pork Belly Recipe with Jasmine Rice

A few years ago, my husband and I were on a motorcycle ride up to The Highlands of North Carolina. We stopped at a restaurant called Ruka’s Table and enjoyed the most delicious teriyaki pork belly recipe my mouth has ever tasted. It was a farm to table restaurant, which we absolutely LOVE to find on our trips. That was my first experience with pork belly, having grown up in New England where such a thing just is not on the menu. It was basically fried pork belly on baby greens and was delicious.

Fast forward a few years and my friendly local farmer tells me he has pork belly for sale at our recent meat pickup. I was thrilled. I started looking for easy pork belly recipes and was amazed at how many I came across. This pork belly recipe was honestly the most delicious thing I have created in a LONG time! If you love the flavor of teriyaki and want to try a meatless dish, try my Asian quinoa recipe!

What is Pork Belly?

So, you are probably wondering exactly ” what is pork belly ?” right? It is NOT the stomach of a pig! Pork belly is very popular in many Chinese recipes.It is a boneless cut of fatty meat from the belly of a pig. A cut of meat like this is often used to make bacon or to make the salt pork that I use in my homemade baked beans. You need to render out a lot of the fat before using it.

Score the meat and cook it in a frying pan low and slow for a while. Start it out in a cold cast iron frying pan. The amount of time you will have to cook it depends on the thickness and fat content. Mine took about 30 to 45 minutes  Drain the fat from the pan frequently. Once it starts slowing down you can stop cooking it. All easy pork belly recipes are going to require you to render off the fat a bit first.
