Pork belly has a reputation around the world as one of the tastiest cuts of meat that comes from a pig. From Asia to Europe and the Americas, nearly every culture eats pork belly in some capacity because it is delicious and plentiful. In China it is often braised, in South America they fry it and make a dish called chicharrón and in the United States cured pork belly, or bacon, is used in hundreds of recipes. HKScan’s Flodins omega-3 pork belly is perfect for use in all your favorite ethnic dishes, and we even have some special cooking tips for you!
First of all, it’s called pork belly because it is meat that is cut from the belly and side of a pig, right below the ribs. This meat tends to be rich and fatty with plenty of marbling that helps it stay moist and tender throughout the cooking process. Pork Belly can be roasted, chopped and fried, barbequed whole, cooked slow, or crisped up on the grill. You choose how to prepare your pork belly, but if you can’t decide, check out this serving suggestion from HKScan:
