Asian Pork Belly Sliders are cute little slider sandwiches with a lot of flavor. Sliders are perfect as a light meal, appetizer, or as Game Day food.
Asian Pork Belly Sliders
Pork belly cooks up easily in a frying pan or on the grill. The marinade is nice for keeping the meat moist and adding lots of flavor, and you can boil up the leftover marinade for a simple sauce if you want!
What Is Pork Belly?
Pork belly, like bacon, comes from the underside belly of a pig. It's not the actual stomach (thank goodness), it is the flesh that runs on the underside of the pig.
Pork belly is basically bacon that is uncured and hasn't been smoked. You can find it in one large piece or sliced.
How to Prepare Pork Belly For Sliders
• First, you will want to slice 1 pound of pork belly ¼" thick, if unsliced. This thickness works the best.
• Next you will mix up the marinade and pour it into a zip closure baggie with the pork belly to marinate at least a few hours.
• Save the marinade when you remove the pork to cook it. Pour into a saucepan.
• Fry the pork belly in a pan or grill it until crisp on the outside and is cooked through.
• Boil the leftover marinade, then set it aside for dipping.
• Assemble the sliders and serve.

They may be small, but they are big on flavor! Pork Belly marinated in a flavorful mix of Asian ingredients to send these sliders to the top of your appetizer list. Great for Game Day, parties, or any time you want a snacky style meal.
- 1 pound Pork Belly, sliced ¼" thick
- 4 Slider Buns
- ¾ Cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- ½ Cup Rice Wine Vinegar
- ¼ Cup Orange Juice
- 1 Tbsp Chili Garlic Sauce (any Hot Chili sauce or paste will work)
- 3 Garlic Cloves, pressed or smashed and finely minced
- 1 1 inch Piece of Ginger, finely grated
- 2 Scallions, finely chopped
- 1 tsp Lemon Zest
In a medium bowl or a mason jar, whisk together the soy, rice wine vinegar, orange juice, chili garlic sauce, garlic, ginger, scallions and lemon zest.
Place the pork belly in a medium sealable storage bag and pour the marinade over the pork belly. Marinate for 2 hours at room temp, or overnight in the fridge, turning a couple of times.
Heat a skillet or grill pan to medium heat. When it is hot, brush the surface with oil.
Using tongs, place the pork belly in the pan and cook it for about 6-8 minutes per side, until cooked through (don't undercook pork!) Cooking time will depend on the thickness, and how hot your pan is. Just keep watch on it!
Assemble the sliders by putting the desired amount of pork belly on a slider bun and adding some mayo, napa cabbage or a slaw, or any condiments you like. This has a lot of flavor on its own!
You can boil the leftover marinade for a dipping sauce. Just be sure to BOIL it as that raw pork has to cook.
