One piece of pork belly, ideal for braising recipes.
Pork belly is of course the cut that is smoked and turned into bacon. But don’t think that bacon is the only way to enjoy this delicious meat.
We love to cook it on low temperatures in the oven for hours in a braise made with broth, pork fat, and chili peppers. Allowing time for the fat to render, the meat will reach a point of extreme tenderness. Before serving, we sear it on all sides in a hot cast iron skillet to create a delicious crust.
All our pork comes from our good friends at Cairncrest Farm. We’ve found that we have very compatible goals and farming practices, so we are happy to have them as a partner for pasture raised pork. Pigs are animals that thrive in an outdoor environment, where they can root in the ground and sprawl in the sun. And consequently you’ll find that this pork is unlike other pork. The meat has developed character because of the active and healthy lives these pigs live. All the pigs’ grains are non-GMO (grown right here in our town actually) and of course the pigs are free of antibiotics and hormones.
