Ingredients

  • 6 cups kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 6 cups sugar
  • One fresh 5 to 8-pound pork belly
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery, trimmed
  • 2 onion, halved
  • 1 head garlic, halved horizontally
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for sauteing

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Combine the salt and sugar and completely cover the pork belly with the mixture. Refrigerate for 20 to 24 hours.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. 

Rinse the salt and sugar off the pork and transfer to a large pan. Add the carrots, celery, onions and garlic and cover with water. Cover the pan with foil or a tight-fitting lid and transfer to the oven until the pork is very tender, 13 to 15 hours. 

Gently remove the pork, place in between 2 pans and refrigerate for 12 hours. 

Cut the pork into 6-ounce portions and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a saute pan and saute the pork skin-side down until crisp and hot.
