Directions

1. With a sharp knife, score the pork belly skin diagonally in a diamond pattern. Season with salt, pepper, and Cayenne pepper, rubbing it well into the skin.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet to medium heat. Add the pork belly, skin side down, and cook for 3 minutes until crisped and golden brown. Lightly oil the bottom and sides of your slow cooker and transfer the pork to the slow cooker.

3. In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, chicken stock, honey, garlic, olive oil, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Drizzle the mixture over the pork belly. Close the lid and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 7 hours.

4. When the pork belly is cooked, slice to your desired thickness and serve immediately with rice, noodles, or over sandwiches and tacos. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • We put the pork belly in the slow cooker skin side up – so the fat under the skin will melt slowly and protect the meat from drying up.
  • You may want to skim the fat rendered by the pork belly before serving.
  • You can reserve a bit of the glaze and heat it for 4-5 minutes in a saucepan until thickened, and serve it on the side.
