Pork belly chicharron is not meant to be beautiful. It’s plain and simply tasty. Greasy, artery blocker and decadent.

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Venezuelan
Servings: 5 people
  • 200 gr pork belly cut into pieces about 2 inches
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Oregano
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  1. Heat a big pan over high heat. Pour the water and let it boil.
  2. Season the pork belly with salt, oregano, and the lime juice.
  3. Cook the pork belly in the boiling water and lower the temperature to medium heat. Cook until the water evaporated completely.
  4. Add the vegetable oil and let the pork belly cook for about 15 minutes. Flip the pork belly every 5 minutes. Cover the pan with a lid because there will be a lot of oil splash.
