Posted on

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs (1kg) pork belly
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • A pinch of Cayenne pepper, optional

For the Honey Balsamic Glaze

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or dried oregano, basil, and thyme)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Slow Cooker Pork Belly with Honey Balsamic Glaze – Fall-apart tender and infused with a sticky tangy glaze.

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!
