Would this be the same as a pork picnic? This is what we have on sale in the place of corned beef for St. Patrick's meal.

Confit them and then crisp them in a hot frying pan. Serve with some cannellini cooked with onions and tomatoes.
Here's one from Emeril that is Asian which should be good as it is a common ingredient for that style of cooking.

I didn't know anything about pork belly, so I looked it up. This looks delicious!

OH, you guys!! I just saw the Emeril show that I "sited" above. I cannot WAIT to do this pork belly--and every other thing he did on this show. It was gorgeoous looking to the taste buds. HIGHLY recommend it.

Pork belly? No offense but that sounds yucky to me. I can do a pork tenderloin, a pork roast, pork chops, but a belly? Why? Someone enlighten me please.

Pork belly is what bacon is--but cured and smoked. Fresh pork belly is succulent and special, but needs the proper preparation. It is a well kept secret that is beginning to seep out. Hard to find. I can only find it in our ethnic markets.
