One of the tastiest dishes you can make in the slow cooker is pork belly, and this recipe will show you exactly why that’s the case.

This recipe features a delicious honey and soy icing to drizzle over the top of the super tender pork belly. It actually tastes as good as it sounds.

You should find that this recipe will feed about four people, especially if you have extra side dishes. If you need to feed more people, you only need to double the amount of pork belly and frosting.

There are many more pork recipes you can make in the slow cooker. They’re all pretty good, but slow-cooked pork belly is always at the top of my list.

What to serve with pork belly?

There are a staggering amount of dishes that can accompany pork belly. Below are some ideas on how you can serve this delicious dish.

The side dish I like to have with this dish is a delicious fried rice. For something a little easier, you can stick with regular rice.

Sautéed vegetables such as broccoli, bok choy, onion, carrot and some baby corn are excellent as an accompaniment to this dish. It’s a delicious combination that’s super easy to make quickly.

One option if you have several slow cookers is to make some creamy cabbage. It’s a super tasty dish where the cabbage is cooked to be super tender, and the creamy sauce is full of flavor.

If you have a combination you love and don’t mind sharing, be sure to let us know in the comments section towards the bottom of this page.

Adjust the


There are many small adjustments you can make to this recipe. I’ll quickly cover a couple of ideas on how you can modify the recipe.

If you’re running out of time, you can skip the grill altogether. The only thing you miss out on is the crunchy fat that always tastes super amazing.

Another thing you can skip is the icing for pork belly. I love frosting, so I highly recommend finding the time to do it. However, that said, pork will still be delicious without the frosting.

Before you start cooking, you can cut the pork into slices instead of leaving it as one piece. I recommend frying in a pan if you decide to cut the pork.

Reducing cooking time by about two hours will give you a firmer pork belly. Vital if you prefer that pork is not so tender that it begins to crumble.

Be sure to let us know if you have any adjustments that you think make this recipe even better.

Leftovers and dessert

Any leftover pork belly can be stored in the fridge for up to three days. Alternatively, you can freeze it for up to three months.

You can crush any leftover meat and use it in sandwiches or on a pizza. You can also keep it as it is and eat it with some rice and vegetables.

There are many desserts that go great after this delicious pork recipe. My favorite is some baked apples that you can also cook in the slow cooker. Unfortunately, you will need multiple slow cookers.
