I am plotting on how to cook 1.6 POUNDS of sliced pork bellies. So far my researches have pointed me towards seasoning them with salt and garlic, and frying them till mostly crisp. Then coat them with a soy/honey/ginger/garlic sauce and broil them in the oven for a bit to carmelize.

Then serve with chopped scallions, sesame seeds and broccoli over brown rice.
(not all 1.6 lbs at *once* mind you. Balance will be frozen for future use.)

That, and in other food reminders to myself: I have crusts and filling for a MeatPie(tm) in the freezer that are approaching their use-by date. Must prepare real soon now, before it gets warm enough that MeatPie(tm) is no longer appealing. Perhaps Saturday, for dinner, for my hubbies birthday. *burp*

Unless someone has any other ideas for what to do with 1.6 lbs of slice pork belly... *G*

I most certainly Shall! Hopefully i wont set anything on fire!

(the smoke alarm tells you when the bacon is done.)

They use it for the Trebuchet, of course!

Other uses for pork belly? Well, in the time of Ghenghis Khan they rendered it into fat by cooking it until the meat fell off, strain the fat away from the meat, uses that in soup, and use the slushy fat after it cooled to grease the wheels of the trebuchet as it rolled inexorably closer to the besieged city, then soaked the corpses of a few plague victims in the fat, set them on fire, and hurled them over the city walls using said trebuchet.

God, that must have been something to see!

Saw a cooking show last week that had it seasoned, rolled (with something coating the "inside" portion), and cooked much like a roast. Can't remember if that's the one that used bacon around or not - suspect not, as it's one of the fattier cuts... unless I'm remembering *that* part wrong, in which case it *was* the bacon wrapped one as well. (probably was a Gordon Ramsay show... but not necessarily)
