Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • For the pork belly: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle the pork belly liberally with equal parts salt and sugar. Place the pork belly on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast for about 1 hour.

  • Once the pork belly is done, cool and set aside. Reserve the fat from the pan to be used in the potato salad. Once cooled, portion the belly into 3/4-inch by 3-inch slices.

  • Meanwhile, heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.

  • While the pork belly's roasting, make the vinaigrette for the celery and radish salad. Combine the red wine vinegar, Dijon, and red onions in a food processor. Slowly add in the vegetable oil to emulsify. Season with salt and pepper.

  • For the potato salad: In a frying pan, start with a little of the reserved pork fat. Add the shallots, potatoes, grainy mustard and red wine vinegar. Saute until warmed through. Finish with the chopped chives, salt and pepper.

  • For the celery and radish salad: Toss the radishes and celery in the vinaigrette. Top with celery leaves.

  • For the dipping sauce: Combine the soy, hot sauce and red wine vinegar.

  • Deep fry the pork belly portions in the hot oil until nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Remove and dip in the glaze. Slice and serve with the salads.
