A note about serious food allergies

Pork belly has become a very trendy cut of meat. It is tender, juicy and ideal for sous vide cooking. The best part about the pork belly you received: it is already slow-cooked to perfection and only requires a quick sear. Pork belly lends itself beautifully to slow cooking, and can be paired with an array of accompaniments. This week, we chose whipped yams and melted red chard. Combining these items gives this dish a warm, southern feel, while incorporating a variety of healthy, fresh ingredients.

    Add a pinch of salt and pepper to each side of the pork belly. Heat a sauté pan over medium to high heat. When the pan is nice and hot, sear the skin side of the pork belly first. Flip and cook on the other side after 1-2 minutes. When you have seared each side of the belly, deglaze with ½ cup of water and cover. Turn the heat to low and let slowly simmer for 5 minutes or until the belly is hot throughout.
