Roast Pork Belly, a delicious option for the versatile Pork Belly cut

Pork Belly Ideas

Pork Belly has certainly been in “flavour” recently ūüôā – different variations of this versatile cut has been featured on MasterChef in their recent series, touted by famous/popular Chefs in books, magazines, and in many blogs‚Ķ But what is it?

It is a flat cut of meat that has a fairly high fat to meat ratio.  It is that fat to meat ratio and wide, flat shape, that lends the cut to such a variety of options, recipe wise, and the delicious taste that it is famous for.

There is some caution needed when purchasing your Pork Belly. Too fatty and the recipe will taste unpleasantly slimy.  Too little, and the tough meat (normally ameliorated by the combination of fat:meat) will be tough and dry.

Thankfully for you, Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood, only get the very best Pork Belly. Quality control has already been done, to ensure the top cut of meat is available for you.
