Browned pork belly is rich, full of umami, and delicious. This is a simmered dish, so it's great for serving to guests. It's also delicious served as dipping sauce for bread.
Pork belly blocks were on sale, so I used my beloved Staub pan to make this simmered dish.
By browning the pork belly well to start with, you can seal in the umami of the meat.
