You can use pork shoulder cut, it’s fat and tenderness is similar to pork belly. Fat back meat and pork bacon cut can also be used.

Tips on Cooking this recipe

  • In boiling the pork belly, make sure not to overcook it so that you can still keep its moisture after deep frying.
  • If you desire a much crunchier liempo skin, chill/refrigerate the belly for at least 4 hrs before deep frying.
  • Do not cover the pot during deep frying. It will keep in the steam which will affect the crunchiness of the skin.
