To make this recipe you will need...

  • 3 Garlic Cloves (minced)

  1. With a sharp knife, score the pork belly skin diagonally in a diamond pattern. Season with salt, pepper, and Cayenne pepper, rubbing it well into the skin.
  2. Heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the pork belly, and cook for 3-5 minutes until crisped and golden brown. Lightly oil the bottom and sides of your slow cooker or if your like me and have these fancy liners now's the time to prep your slow cooker and then transfer the pork into it.
  3. In a jug, combine the pre made chicken stock, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, olive oil, and black pepper.
  4. Drizzle the mixture over the pork belly. Close the lid and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7 hours if going out.

When the pork is cooked, serve with rice, noodles or even mash potato and enjoy!
