Liempo or Grilled Pork Belly needs no introduction at all.
The name of the dish already defines itself. This is one good food that I really like because of its simple preparation and magnificent taste.
1 kilo or 2.2 lbs pork belly (liempo) with skin on, cut into 1/2-inch thick pieces
1 cup white vinegar (or palm or cane vinegar)
1 tablespoon black peppercorns, cracked
1/2 head garlic, minced or crushed
1 tablespoon salt
1. In a bowl, marinate the pork belly cuts in vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper for at least one hour.
2. Grill pork over charcoal on both sides until cooked. Slice into bite-size pieces.
3. Serve warm with a garlic-vinegar dip (bawang at suka), soy sauce-vinegar dip, or soy sauce-lemon/lime/calamansi dip.
Enjoy eating with rice.
