- 2 lbs. pork belly
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons whole pepper corn
- 5 pieces dried bay leaves
- 3 cups cooking Oil
- 34 ounces Water

Remove the meat from the pot and let it cool down for a few minutes
Spread 1 tablespoon of salt on the pork belly. Make sure to distribute it evenly on all sections
Start to deep fry the boiled meat. Heat oil on a cooking pot.
Put each piece of boiled pork belly into the hot oil with extra caution. Fry until crispy. Turn the meat over to completely fry the opposite side until crispy. Note: be extra careful when frying as oil can splatter. You can use the cover of the pot to cover it while oil splatters, but do not cover completely as steam will be trapped. It will cause more splatters.
