How do I stop my pork belly from being chewy?
Cut some slices, crisped and grilled them, and they are a bit chewy (but tasty). I did buy meatier slices of belly – maybe too meaty? I also favor very meaty bacon and it gets chewy as well. I purposefully did not select strips with large fatty or fatty/meaty hybrid chunks as spouse hates those, and I don’t love them.

Why do you boil pork belly?
