Want to make some awesome tasting bacon in your own kitchen? Try this recipe!


1 6-10 pound pork belly
3/4 -1 cup sea salt (depending on the size of your belly)
3/4 -1 cup packed brown sugar, coconut sugar, or pure maple syrup (depending on the size of your belly.)
2 Tbsp. freshly ground black peppercorns
For a savory twist, add your favorite herbs!


1.Mix the sea salt, sugar, and peppercorns in a bowl.

2.Place half of the mixture in the bottom of a glass dish.

3.Place the pork belly into the dish and seat it into the mixture.Put the other half of the mixture across the top of the belly and spread it evenly all over, making sure the belly is completely covered with the mixture.

4.Place the dish, uncovered, in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, until the meat feels firm. The longer you leave it in the refrigerator the more intense your salt flavor will be come.

5.After the bacon is finished curing, wash the mixture off of the belly and pat dry.

6.Place the bacon back in the refrigerator in a clean dish and allow it to dry for 1-2 days.

7.After a day or two, you can pull the bacon out, slice it, fry it, and satisfy your taste buds that have been watering in anticipation!

8.At this stage of your bacon, it is best to slice what you don’t use after 2-3 days and freeze it. If you slice the bacon and then freeze it on a cookie tray until firm, you can place the frozen slices in a bag and later can easily pull out however many slices you need at a time. :)

What our customers are saying about this product:
  • I'm thrilled you are carrying this now. Koreans love this cut. We buy it presliced and then grill it at the table. The way we eat it is to take a small slice of red leaf lettuce, put a small amount of rice on it, pluck a sizzling piece of the pork off the grill and add it atop the rice, then add a little spicy red pepper paste on top of that. Roll it up and stuff the whole thing in your mouth. That's why it has to be all small amounts - it's not a burrito. Or, instead of the spicy red pepper paste, you make a mixture of sesame seed oil, sesame seeds, and salt. When you get your pork, you dip it in that instead and add only that to the rice and lettuce. ~ Robin S.
