Pork Belly Chips

Deep fried thinly sliced pork belly with a simple black vinegar dipping sauce. The pork belly was first pressure cooked in a seasoned broth, chilled, sliced and then fried until crisp. It can be enjoyed on its own as a snack (seriously the best chips that I have ever had), or as the main with some seasonal salad or use them as the soup topping. I had to tweak the recipe that I found on Raymund's blog a bit (to add chilli, fish sauce, and black salt) based on my taste and what I have in pantry.

  • 1-1.5 kg Pork belly, (1 big piece, do not slice)
  • 2 tbsp Maggi liquid seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Black peppercorns
  • 4 Bay leaves
  • 3 Dried chillies
  • 1/2 tsp Kala Nama black salt (or sea salt)
  • 400 ml Water
  • 1 kg Lard for frying
  1. Place the pork belly, skin side up, in your Instant Pot together with the Maggi liquid seasoning, crushed garlic cloves, black peppercorns, bay leaves, dried chillies and kala nama black salt.
  2. Pour in water and lock on the lid, making sure the steam release valve is in “Sealing” position. Cook for 25 minutes. Once all the pressure has been released, remove the pork belly and pat it dry with a paper towel. Once it's cooled to room temperature, refrigerate it for over night.
  3. Remove the pork belly from the frigerator and cut into 3-4mm thin slices.
  4. Heat the lard in a large saucepan until the temperature reaches 180C/350F. Lower the pork belly slices into the hot lard and fry for 15 minutes. Remove and drain on the kitchen paper. Cool for 30-60 minutes.
  5. Bring the lard back to boil and refry the pork belly slices on high for 5 minutes until nicely golden brown and crisp. Serve with your favourite sauce. I like to dip them with a mixture of black vinegar, light soya sauce, minced garlic and chopped coriander leaves.

Por aquí se llaman cortezas y es cierto que están muy buenas, eso si, hay que comerlas con moderación.

Pork belly chips? I've only seen this before on the mentioned Raymund's blog. And probably seeing this the second time within last couple of months is a sigh that I should give them a try :) Look beautiful!

Presentation is perfect (great photos) Dear Angie! This recipe looks really different.

How do you come up with these fabulous ideas and then make them real? Pork belly chips? I'm in heaven. I can just look at them and hear the crunch of biting into them.

Addictive indeed! I can foresee myself munching on these, non-stop :p

Tisa Jacob 11/3/22 02:40

What a wonderful idea! Fried pork belly. I like how you used kala namak- that would give it such a unique savory taste.
