DIY: Pork Belly
Pork belly: Where do you buy it? How do you make it? What the heck is it? Pork belly is a slab of meat that comes directly from the fat belly-part of a pig, it's so deliciously juicy. You can buy a slab of from local meat markets...you definitely can't buy it at Giant Eagle or other chain-style grocery stores. If you live in the Cleveland area, I would suggest going to the Westside Market in Ohio City, or Hall Brother's Meat in Olmsted Falls.
Pork belly can also be cooked a bunch of different ways. My method was cooking it in the oven for 3 and a half hours, so that the top fatty part turns sort of crunchy. Once it's cooked you can slice it and put in on sandwiches or steamed buns, it can be used in ramen, or on tacos.. or it can just be eaten plain! The options are endless.
Holy. Sh*t. This is the best meat I've ever had.. why have I never cooked rack of lamb before? I feel like such a dumbo for just now starting to explore my carnivorous taste-buds. LOL @ Chrissy Teigen's post last year saying "Please make lamb more people. It makes you seem fancy when you're really just a lazy trash bag." I have to agree with her though.. too good.
