  • 1 kg Pork Belly cleaned
  • 1 tsp Whole Peppercorn
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 pcs Bay Leaves
  • 6 cups Water
  • 2 cups Oil


  • Using a fork, lightly stab the skin of the pork belly.
  • In a pot, bring water to boil with salt, bay leaves, and whole peppercorn.
  • When the water is boiling already, put the pork belly into the pot. Simmer for 1 hour. Occasionally turn the meat over.
  • After 1 hour, transfer the pork belly into a flat surface. Let it cool.
  • Now, stab the pork skin using a fork again. Rub it with salt and transfer into a wire rack and let it dry using the air coming from an electric fan.
  • After 1 hour, heat oil in a pan, then put the pork belly into the pan. Occasionally turn the meat over. Fry until golden brown.
    Tip: Make sure the oil is hot already before frying the pork.
  • Make slices. Serve with your choice of sauce and enjoy!
