Easy oven roasted pork belly on the table in less than 40 minutes! The flavors of a barbecued roast pork but none of the work. Serve with salad and mashed potatoes or use it for sandwiches.

Remember when I bought this? Half a pig, all nicely cut up into pretty portions. We’ve been enjoying this all winter, and it was a great purchase. Definitely something I’ll do again.

Pork side all cut up and ready for the freezer

The problem was that I forgot to make it really clear that I wanted the pork belly left whole and uncut – I wanted to make bacon.

The butcher heard “make bacon” and so he sliced up a bunch of my pork belly into slices. Not what I planned, so I had to come up with something interesting to do with them. And … how about Roasted Pork Belly Slices?

Or maybe Barbecue Pork Belly Slices?

Does it sound good? It turned out every bit as good as I expected.

Not my whole pork belly - the butcher cut it up in slices

Not what I had planned, but they’re good and worth making.

We’re just going to make a pound of it here, but you can double or triple this, depending on how much sliced pork belly you have.

For every 1 pound sliced pork belly, you’re going to need 2 tablespoons mustard, 3 tablespoons paprika, 2 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning, 1/2 lemon, and 2 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar.

If you don’t like Italian seasoning, you can use any herb-y low salt seasoning that you like.

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Pork belly slices and spices for barbecue sauce

Combine the mustard, paprika, brown sugar, oil, Italian seasoning and oil in a bowl until fully mixed.

What you’ll end up with is something that looks like thickened barbeque sauce. Absolutely perfect for coating pork belly slices!

Coat the slices evenly on both sides. It’ll be be messy.

Before you coat the second side, place the pork belly on a baking dish that is lined with foil or parchment, something that won’t stick horribly.

Squeeze the lemon juice over the slices.

Place in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through the time. Pork belly slices don’t take long to cook.

Serve as is or slice up.

This roasted pork belly recipe goes well with mashed potatoes, salad greens and even with some light pasta. The best part? It is even better the day after it is cooked so you can just double or triple the recipe and feed more people or save some for awesome leftovers!
