Satay Pork Belly Strips :
Our expert butchers only select the belly of pork with the best meat to fat ratio to ensure that there is plenty of meat in each slice. The 5 slices are evenly cut to approximately 105-grams each because it allows the Indian seasoning to fuse with the meat for better flavour. Cooking the pork belly strips quickly will help to retain their natural juices giving a succulent slice of pork belly with an Indian twist.
In preparation of the pork belly before slicing the rind or skin has been removed & all the bones are taken away, leaving just the juicy meat with a covering of fat. This adds to the flavour whilst keeping the pork belly slices moist during cooking. This is the same principal when creating our Pork Loin Steaks, as they say “fat is flavour” & this is especially true of the belly or Brisket.
The selection of the pork is important before any cutting is done, as the colour has to be light pink, ensuring that it will be tender, & there has to be enough meat on them because the seasoning will only properly infuse with the meat. Most importantly, there has to be plenty of meat for your money that tastes perfect every time!
The texture of the belly of pork is fairly coarse & has superb flavour because of this, & the meat will become Melt in your mouth tender when cooked. The essential vitamins, minerals & protein is always found in top quality pork & is important as part of a daily diet, the meat on the Pork Belly Strips has plenty of these & can become a healthier meal option if the fat is trimmed after cooking.
