Pork Belly Asado is a classic Filipino dish that features tender and juicy pork belly slow-cooked in a sweet and tangy sauce. The pork belly is marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, and spices for several hours, then slow-cooked until it is tender and flavorful. The result is a melt-in-your-mouth pork belly that is perfect for serving over rice or alongside your favorite vegetable dish.
The cooking time for Pork Belly Asado can take several hours depending on the size and thickness of the pork belly. However, the dish itself is relatively easy to prepare, and the slow-cooking process allows the pork belly to absorb all of the delicious flavors in the marinade.
In a large bowl, mix together the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, black pepper, and bay leaves.
Place the pork belly in the bowl with the marinade, making sure to coat it well.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.
Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).
Remove the pork belly from the marinade and place it in a large roasting pan.
Add 1/2 cup of water to the pan, then cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.
Roast the pork belly in the oven for 2-3 hours, or until it is fork-tender.
Remove the aluminum foil and roast the pork belly for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and browned.
Remove the pork belly from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
