This pork belly on the grill is the best addition to any recipe! This grilled pork belly is full of flavor, tender, juicy, sweet, and yet it has a nice kick to it!
This recipe was inspired by my husband’s favorite taco joint here in Pittsburgh, Tako! Years ago they made homemade guacamole with fresh pork belly on top, ever since I have been obsessed with pork belly.
Pork Belly On The Grill:
- Pork belly: I like to get this from the butcher at Whole Foods. Cut the long piece of fat off of the one side with a sharp knife. Then, cut the pork belly into 1 inch cubes.
- Paprika-Adds a nice kick!
- Avocado oil-This helps form a marinate for the pork belly.
- Sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder-To flavor.
- Fresh cilantro-This is what makes the guacamole.
- Coconut sugar-optional, to add some sweetness.
How to Make Pork Belly On The Grill:
- First, make sure the long strip of fat is cut off of the pork belly. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F. Next, using kitchen scissors, cut the pork belly into 1 inch cubes. Add all of the spices and avocado oil to a bowl without the pork belly to marinate. Lastly, place a large piece of foil on the grill and arrange the pork belly into a single layer on the foil. Grill for 20 minutes without opening the lid and then flip and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
What Should I Serve This With?
I could make a page long list of list of things to serve this with, but here are a few of my favorites:
- Whole30 Guacamole
How Do I Know If It Is Done?
- You can always use a meat thermometer to see if it reached 145 degrees F, however they may be a little difficult because the pieces are so small. You could also cut a small piece and examine the middle of it. It should be a light brown color.
