Servings 1


  • 1 1/2 lb Slice of Pork Belly the Costco one is about 10″ in length
  • 2 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Inch Ginger
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1/2 Stalk Green Onion


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Cut pork belly into ~1/2 inch thickness. The length of each piece can vary but it's best to be around 1-2 inches long per slice. Note - it's easier to slice meat more precisely if semi-frozen.
  • Finely chop green onion stalk and set aside.
  • Grate garlic and ginger with a grater and transfer into a small mixing bowl. Combine Sesame Oil, salt and black pepper, mix well and set aside.
  • Bring a large Teflon frying pan up to temperature on high, should take around 1 minute. Once up to temp, reduce to medium-high heat, transfer pork belly and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side until nicely browned. Note - after about 5 minutes, the oils from the pork belly will start to accumulate in the pan and you will start deep frying. This is where the pork belly will really crisp up.
  • Transfer the pork belly onto a holding plate.
  • In a new large Teflon frying pan, place on high heat, add sauce from step 4) and spread it out evenly. Once sauce starts to bubble/become fragrant (about 1 minute), add back the pork belly. Mix pork belly around until well coated and transfer onto serving plate. Top with green onions and enjoy!
