Just happened to see Pork Belly recently in the store. Always wondered why when they don't have to do ANYTHING with it but still $3 a lb more than bacon. In my case it was $6.98/lb.Last night: Thick slices of pork belly, which I marinated overnight in fresh basil, thyme, garlic, and EVOO. I then braised it in chicken stock for a few hours, then broiled it to crisp it up and to render more fat. Served with cacio e pepe with (untraditional) sauteed mushroooms; grilled aspargus and home-grown garlic scapes; baked lima beans with soy, olives, and garlic slivers; sauteed escarole with lots of garlic. Washed it down with a cheapish (WTSO) Valpolicella Ripasso.

Wow! I don't get that. It costs about half that around here, both at Wegman's and Costco.Just happened to see Pork Belly recently in the store. Always wondered why when they don't have to do ANYTHING with it but still $3 a lb more than bacon. In my case it was $6.98/lb.
Par boil redskin potatoes and let cool. Slice thinly and toss with EVOO and a little garlic. Into a 455F oven until crisp. Let cool. The salad is just mixed greens, the potatoes, scallions and/or leeks and blue cheese crumbles.What all is in that Salad, looks really good!
