I'm sure this isn't the traditional method by any means, but with the kids, the slow cooker makes life a lot easier:

I added a step before the marinade (ginger, garlic, 5 spice, dried chilis, white pepper, veggie oil) and scored and salted the skin, liberally.

 

I decided to take pictures at some of the same points as the recipe:

after 7 hours in the slow cooker:

CRISPY!!!

DINNER!!!

I'm going to make this MANY more times, so so so so good. I may try a more traditional approach next time, but I can't knock the slow cooker on this one.  I thought I might not get it crispy enough, but that was not a problem.

the rest are just blocked... i can't get a good URL on them.. i've tried like 4 times.  

 

feck, it's AMAZING. and it was simple enough.   and my pictures look incredibly similar to the ones in the recipe.  

 

made it with jasmine rice and stir fried brocc and carrot.  I'll work on the pictures this weekend when i have a chance.

 

 

EDIT: I think I figured out the pictures, lemme know if you can see them.

We just had a pork belly and oyster appetizer at Commander's Palace in New Orleans that blew my mind... I have never tried making my own! This sounds awesome

pork belly is very fun!!!

 

Feck and I were talking about this method on SAT, and the way the fat just disappears is remarkable.  VERY cruchy skin, and tasty tasty roasted pork.

 

I might be making this for friends on SAT this weekend.

deep fried.... whoa.

 

there's a Filipino place near me that does a deep fried belly, traditional Lechon Kawali, 

 

I just found out about this a week or so ago.        

 

I will report back.
