  • 1 lb. pork belly sliced
  • 4 pieces dried bay leaves
  • 1 ½ tablespoons rock salt or coarse sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups water


  • Pour water in a cooking pot. Bring to a boil.
  • Add salt, pepper, and bay leaves.
  • Slide-in the pork and let the water re-boil. Cover and boil in medium heat until the pork gets tender. You can add more water if needed.
  • Once the pork is tender, remove the cover. Adjust the heat to medium and then cook while stirring until the water completely evaporates.
  • Continue to fry the pork in its own oil while constantly flipping it over until it turns golden brown.
  • Remove the pork from the cooking pot or pan and transfer to plate with paper towel.
  • You can serve it as it is or use it as an ingredient in other Filipino dishes. Enjoy!
