I love Chicharon but sometimes buying it in stores feels unhealthy, haha! So I decided to cook something on my own where I’m fully aware of its ingredients and cook procedure. Apparently, there’s such a food called pinakupsan. Which is just super friend pork seasoned with salt. And it taste exactly like a premium meaty Chicharon. Soooo good!
When I cooked this Pinakupsan dish, I threw the oil away. I think it can be used to cook other dishes which already has a porky flavor. This Pinakupsan can be served with vinegar and eat as a snack or the dish can be your dish to serve with rice! It’s good however you want to serve it!
- 500 Grams Pork belly cubed
- 1 Tsp Salt
- Vinegar to serve
In a bowl, add salt to pork.
In a wok or pan, heat oil over medium heat.
Add pork belly and spread throughout the pan.
Cook for 5 minutes while turning occasionally.
When the pork renders fat/oil, set heat to low.
Cover pan and continue to cook for about 10 minutes or more until pork is golden brown and crispy.
Drain pork from oil and place on a serving dish and enjoy! Serve with vinegar.
