Air Fryer Pork Belly Bites are delicious little seasoned pieces of pork belly that are flavorful and cooked crispy in an air fryer!
These pork belly bites are super crispy and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I promise you will not be able to eat just one of these.
I recently ordered a box of delicious farm-fresh meats from FarmFoods Market and I am in love with everything I got from them.
Farm Foods Market sent me a selection of products for free in return for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Over the last couple of years, I have really gotten into getting the majority of my meat from local farms instead of the big box grocery stores. I want to make sure that what I am feeding my family is good for them and not full of chemicals and hormones.
There is no middle man and everything is humanely raised and that means a lot to me when I am buying meat for the meals that I make.
What Do They Offer at Farm Foods Market?
The Farm Foods Market website is user-friendly with meat categorized by animal: beef, pork, chicken and “other meats.”
The other meat category specializes in off-the-cuff options like bison, elk, salmon, lamb and even pheasant. There are a lot of cuts you would never find in a supermarket, like pork belly. I cannot get that here where I live and I have been dying to try it! That is how this recipe came to be.
How to Make Air Fryer Pork Belly Bites
Pork belly is like a huge slab of bacon, but uncured, unsliced, and unsmoked. Both pork belly and bacon come from the flesh from the underside, or belly, of a pig.
I cut mine into 1″ chunks because as it cooks, it does shrink a little.
Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the oil, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Next, add the pork belly pieces to the oil mixture to coat each piece.
Then, in a single layer, place the pork belly cubes in the air fryer basket.
Cook the pork belly bites for 20 minutes, shaking and flipping them a couple of times throughout the air-frying time.
If you want a crispier piece, cook them longer until you achieve the look and taste you are going for.
Remove the bites from the air fryer and serve warm.
These turned out so good and like I said above, I am so glad to know where my meat is coming from. In fact, this pork belly came right from a farm here in Kentucky where I live. I thought that was pretty cool. You can check out the Farm Foods Market website and load your freezer up with some delicious tasting farm to table meats.
