How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°. Liberally sprinkle pork all over with salt.

Step 2

Put pork in a large roasting pan (crowding is okay). Coat all over with toasted sesame oil, then with hot pepper oil.

Step 3

Roast for about 20 minutes. Then reduce to 350° and roast 2 to 2 1/2 hours, periodically pouring off fat (have a heatproof bowl handy for this), until pork belly is crisp on top but still juicy within.

Step 4

Serve the strips on a large wooden cutting board. Chop a couple of them into bite-size pieces to convey the idea, and serve with a knife so everyone can cut their own chunks.

Chef's Notes

*Whole Foods Market sells pork belly already cut into strips.

Make ahead: Up to 3 days, reheated at 350° for 15 minutes.
