Pork Belly Made Easy
Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
Score the skin of the pork belly in alternating diagonals. Mix the seasonings together and rub the spice mixture all over both sides of the pork belly.
Sear the meat on ALL sides in the oil for ONE MINUTE PER SIDE. Yes, you even need to cook the thin sides–this is where tongs will come in handy.
Place the veggies in the bottom of a crock pot or lined baking dish. Place the pork belly on top. Pour the vinegar over the meat, then the fish sauce or coconut aminos.
If you’re using a crockpot, cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
If you’re using an oven, cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 170 degrees for 4-5 hours.
