Homemade bacon is easy to make! All you need are pantry staples and thinly-sliced pork belly and you're good to go.
Prep time 10 minutes
Cooking time 20 minutes
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup minced, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons fine salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups water
1 kilo pork belly, sliced
cooking oil, for frying
In a small bowl, combine vinegar, garlic, salt, black pepper, and water. Stir until salt is completely dissolved. Set aside.
Arrange pork slices lengthwise in a large container and pour the vinegar marinade over them. Leave in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or overnight.
When ready to cook, place pork strips on a chopping board and pat dry with paper towels to remove more excess liquid.
Heat oil in a large pan. Fry pork strips until golden brown and crunchy at the edges. Blot the fried pork strips with paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve while hot.
