Pepper Pork Belly Strips Recipe – the “Crispiest Juiciest” Method Around

Pepper Pork Spare Ribs Recipe
A mouthwatering, crunchy and juicy pepper pork belly recipe.

I love the way Pork Belly Strips fry up so I went on a mission to create the crunchiest version for my hungry carnivore friends with some pepper to taste.

Be warned this a very simple recipe but it’s advised that you grab a pan with a lid or some sort of guard because this little piggy will spit at you.

Pork belly is already a very fatty cut but to make this extra crunchy we fried it in lard (more pig fat).

The result was crispy and juicy pork belly strips with a peppery bite to them.
