I don’t know about you, but love bite sized foods. Pineapple ginger pork belly bites can be eaten as an appetizer or a main dish and no matter which way you serve them the end result is always super delicious. Here’s what I did:

How to make pineapple ginger pork belly bites

To start, wash the meat to get rid of any bacteria and dirt, soak them in vinegar and lemon water for at least 30 minutes. Cut the pork belly into 1 inch cubes.

I marinated the pork belly in my homemade dry rub (you can find in my Blackberry hoisin ribs post) for around 10 – 20 min (overnight is good as well).

Now, its time to prepare the pineapple. Cut 4 slices into chunks (I used a tin of Dole pineapple slices). Brown them on both sides and remove from the pan when they are done.

After, sear the pork belly cubes on all sides. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan, minus the pineapple chunks. Cover the pan and let the juices cook into the meat for about 40 min, give or take, on medium heat.

Finally, when the meat is nearly done return the pineapple chunks to the pan and turn the heat down to a low simmer until it was finished.

Plain white rice always does the trick, but coconut or curry rice would be amazing as well. Soba or egg noodles would be an absolute shout as well or you can keep it classy with an Asian slaw or mixed grilled veggies.
