Thinly Sliced Pork Belly

I bought some thinly sliced pork belly at the international grocery store. Turns out it's not what I needed for that particular recipe, and now it's been camping out in my freezer for a while because I'm not sure what to do with it. Can I use it like I would bacon in any recipe? What else can I do with it?

If it's fresh pork belly (uncured) you only have about 3 days to use it. I buy the larger chunks of pork belly at my H Mart and dry or wet cure it and use it like I would bacon or pancetta in recipes. I use bacon and pancetta more as flavorings and condiments. If it's too late to cure it, I'd probably just fry it up in a pan. You'll want to season it with salt, pepper and whatever else sounds good to you.

I just noticed it's camping out in your freezer, not your fridge.

I'm a fan of spicy pork belly lettuce wraps. Here's a recipe from the Washington Post. No need to season the pork belly, the sauces and scallion salad have tons of flavor. http://www.washingtonpost...
