German Bacon

Two years ago I posted this recipe in Wyatt’s Kitchen with the Title “As Time goes by“. It’s a recipe I’ve learned from Tita Vicky. She learned this recipe from a friend when she was working in the US back in the 70s.

It’s very easy to do but you need to wait. Wait for 2 weeks curing time.

1

Materials:
Pork Belly
Salt
Peppercorns

Although these are simple materials. It pays to be critical about the quality. When you buy your pork belly, ask the butcher to slice it thinly.

2

Use only freshly crack peppercorns. Use mature, unadulterated peppercorns.

3

Line up the tray salt and pepper. put your slices of pork belly.

4

Cover with more salt and freshly cracked peppercorns.

5

Cover with a plastic film. store in the lowest part of the refrigerator and age for at least two weeks.

  1. I just knew that it needs to be cured for 2 weeks. Now I know, I will do the same when I have plans to cook pork belly. I love cooking so much, I love to eat and pair it with my favorite soda. I so love it.

    it must be such a worry to have your father so unwell – we all hope he maintains his kidnye function and his health, and that there are no complications from the frequent dialysis, which must be such a worry to all of your family.
    It is kind of you to still devote time to this blog, as much as you do. The German bacon article has such clear directions, I will attempt it today.
    Thank you for your loyalty to your readers.

    Hi stethacp. If I’m using iodized salt (and even seasalt) about a pinch per slice.
