In This Recipe
Grind spices and mix, in a large bowl, with the salt.
Place pork belly in a large ziplock bag and rub the spice mixture all over.
With the pork still inside the bag, rub it with garlic and gently pour on the wine, taking care not to rub off the spices.
Cure the belly in the fridge for 8-15 days. The salt and spices will penetrate the meat, rendering it firm.
