Teriyaki Glazed Pork Belly Recipe with Jasmine Rice

Ingredients
  1. 1 pound pork belly
  2. 2 TBSP sesame oil
  3. 2 TBSP honey
  4. 2 TBSP brown sugar
  5. 1 TBSP soy sauce
  6. 2 TBSP teriyaki sauce
  7. 1/2 TBSP sriracha (adjust to taste)
  8. 1/2 tsp lemon grass
  9. pinch fresh pepper
  10. 1 glove garlic, minced
  11. 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  12. 1 jalapeno, seeds removed and finely diced
  13. 1/2 TBSP sesame seeds
  14. Jasmine Rice for serving

Instructions
  • Score the fattiest side of the pork belly with a sharp knife
  • Set a cast iron frying pan on a cold burner and place the pork belly fat side down in the pan
  • Turn the frying pan on medium low and cook until the fat almost stops rendering out of the meat. Turn once or twice while cooking. Timing will vary depending on how thick the pork belly and how fatty it is.
  • Once the fat coming out of the meat has slowed down, remove from the pan.
  • Dice the meat into bit sized pieces and return to pan, cooking a few more minutes to crisp up the outside and cook off a bit more fat. Drain fat from pan.
