Pork Belly with Skin

Pork belly has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It's most commonly used to make bacon but can also be treated like a roast. Braised pork belly dishes are also very popular in Europe. Whether being smoked, roasted, or braised, the flavors and textures that come from this cut are unbelievably good when cooked until fork tender. The skin is attached which can be roasted into unforgettable crispy crunchy crackling! When making bacon at home, the skin also serves as a protectant during the curing/cooking process, and it's easily removed after the recipe is completed.
