Cook Belly Pork in the Slow Cooker
Want to know how to cook belly pork in the slow cooker? Look no further! This recipe was tried and tested in the ZSD kitchen as a little experiment, and it worked! Who’d of thought belly pork would turn out to be so beautiful when cooked so slowly and simply?
You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to cook belly pork in the slow cooker. It’s as easy as whacking it all in and leaving it all day!
- Belly pork strips (you can use a joint too – it’s just the strips are cheaper and usually have a little more fat to keep the meat moist)
- 1 onion
- Fajitas, Cajun or jerk seasoning
- Flat leaf parsley
- Olive oil
- Himalayan salt
Take your belly pork and rub it in olive oil, then rub until completely covered in your seasoning, then rub with the salt. Place the oil in the slow cooker and add your belly pork to the bottom.
Place your chopped onion on top, then your parsley. Finally add a little more olive oil (a teaspoon or so) to the top and put the lid on. Cook on ‘low’ for around 9 hours.
You’ll find because we didn’t add stock, the olive oil mixes with the condensation and forms a stunning thick ‘sauce’ for the belly pork to cook in.
Serve with either brown rice or sweet potato for the ultimate comfort food treat. You won’t be disappointed!
And that’s really all there is too it! No excuses…
