You'll need: pork belly, brown sugar, kosher salt, chicken or pork stock, Frank's Red Hot, butter, bleu cheese, carrot & celery sticks. And something to snack on so you don't eat all the carrot sticks while making this.
Rub the belly
while patting your head, lol with 1 cup salt and 1 cup brown sugar, then throw it in a Ziploc bag. Leave it in the fridge for 24hrs. Leave it in for another 48hrs and it'll taste like a hilarious Eddie Murphy movie. But seriously, leaving it in for 72hrs yields amazing flavor.
Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Braise the belly in the stock before covering a casserole dish with foil and throwing it in.
Cook for 3hrs at 300 degrees.
Take it out, pat it dry. Cut it into bite-sized pieces and deep fry at 375 degrees. If you don't have a deep fryer, any pan will do. Heat the oil to medium temp, and it should be hot enough that it'll boil when you slowly drop the belly in with tongs. PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
While that's frying up, melt 4oz butter and 8oz Frank's Red Hot together in a pan.
Pour it over the fried deliciousness and toss.
Plate with carrot sticks, celery sticks and bleu cheese. Do not offer to Ray Lewis.
