The most juicy and tender pork belly you can imagine. With a southeast Asian marinade, the flavor in this recipe is jam-packed!

Ingredients for 4

  • 2 1/2 pounds pork belly, in as large pieces as possible

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup mirin

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 2 whole scallions, roughly chopped

  • 3 medium cloves garlic, roughly chopped

  • 1 (2-inch) chunk ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

Directions

  • Step 1

    Heat Anova to 170°F / 76.7°C

  • Step 2

    Combine soy sauce, mirin, sugar, fish sauce, scallions, garlic, and ginger in the bowl of a food processor. Process until vegetables are roughly pureed.

  • Step 3

    Transfer pork belly and marinade to a food-saver style vacuum bag and seal. You can marinade this overnight (better flavor!) or you can sous vide immediately for hours

    • Broiler/Oven Finish

    • Step 1

      Remove bag from cooker when 8 hours is up and chill thoroughly. Pork belly can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks after cooking if the bag remains sealed.

    • Step 2

      When ready to serve, open sous vide bag and remove pork belly. Discard solid chunks of fat.

    • Step 3

      Warm congealed liquids in a small saucepan, then strain through a fine mesh strainer. Return to saucepan and simmer until reduced to a cup or less

    • Step 4

      Preheat broiler to high. Broil pork belly until crisp and charred on one side, about 3 minutes. Slice. It will be nice and tender!
