Pork belly is a boneless cut of fatty meat from the belly of a pig. This dish is considered a delicacy in many parts of the world.  Now I know why.  Delicious does not do this meat justice.  Tender, moist and high fat.  Better than pork roast or pork steak.  No need to be intimidated, just add salt and pepper.  LOVE THIS.
