Ingredients
  • 2 pounds pork belly, cut into 6-inch squares

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Start by putting the pork belly in a large pot covered with water. Boil over high heat until it is fork tender, 1 hour 30 minutes.

  • Next, place the pork in a strainer and drain to remove all of the water, 30 minutes.

  • In a deep fryer, add the oil and preheat to medium-high heat. Fry the pork until golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. (The thicker the slab of belly, the longer it will take to fry.) Remove and drain.

  • Chop the pork belly into 1-centimeter-square pieces. In a medium mixing bowl, add the pork belly, onions, tomatoes, fish sauce and salt, and toss all together. Plate and add green onion for garnish before serving.
