I was going through my phone and found some pictures of a cook that I did a while back. I never posted it because I didn’t get any great pictures but I figured I needed to write the general idea down somewhere before it got washed away by Gin and Tonics.
I started with some strips of pork belly that I got from Costco. Cut them into 1 inch cubes and let them marinate (4 hours, refrigerated) in the following:
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup 7 Up
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger
I got the belly onto the pit and smoked the cubes until they hit an internal temperature of around 190F. They took on some good color…too bad it was too dark to get a decent picture!
I waited until the bites were cool enough to touch, sliced them up and made a big pile of tacos using corn tortillas, sour cream, lettuce and Sriracha.
Might fine eating! Might poor photography 🙂
These were little bombs of flavor going off with the sour cream and sriracha really playing nice together.
Made me happy.
I will be tweaking this recipe and trying again pretty soon!
