Marinated Pork Belly

It took some experimentation, but I finally perfected this marinade and pork belly recipe. Excellent to use in other dishes or eat the whole sheet pan like I intend to do. They are a little sweet, a little spicy, and seriously delicious


What You Need

  • 3 pounds of pork belly

  • Tamari (soy sauce)

  • Garlic (2-3 cloves)

  • Sriracha

  • Brown Sugar Swerve

  • Sesame Oil

  • Salt & Pepper


How To Cook It

  • Combine tamari, crushed garlic, sesame oil, and sriracha into a bowl. I eye balled the amount but about a 1:1 ratio on the sriracha and tamari. Use a good amount of the swerve but make sure it mostly dissolves into the marinade. You need enough to cover all of your pork belly

  • Cut your pork belly into roughly 1 inch cubes, season with salt and pepper

  • Throw your pork belly into the large bowl with your marinade. Thoroughly toss to cover completely

  • Toss everything into a zip-lock bag and let sit for at least an hour, preferably 4

  • Once you are ready to cook, preheat your oven to 400

  • Prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper

  • Lay out the pork belly and marinade on the pan, be sure to give each piece a little room around it

  • Pop in the oven for 30 minutes and then flip each piece over and place back in the oven for 30 minutes

  • You should see some very dark crispy bits and that's when you know it's done. Be careful removing as a lot of fat will have rendered out

  • Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy
