One of the foods I miss the most, since going on the AIP, is BBQ Pork Fried Rice from my local Chinese restaurant. It was one of my absolute favorite foods. I vowed to create an AIP compliant fried rice that would be similar in flavors. I believe I’ve finally done it with my AIP Paleo Pork Belly Fried Rice recipe.
When I visited my local butcher, he alerted me to some pastured pork belly he had just received from a local farm. I immediately bought every single piece. That’s right, I cleaned him out.
Once home, I had to figure out what I was going to do with all that pork belly. That’s when my AIP Paleo Pork Belly Fried Rice recipe was born.
Since I like my pork belly crispy, I decided to roast it first. This is my recipe for AIP Crispy Pork Belly:
2 pounds pork belly, divided into 4 pieces
salt, garlic powder and onion powder
Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle pork belly with salt, garlic and onion powder on all sides. Place pork belly, skin side up, on elevated rack, in baking dish or pan (should be at least 1” deep). Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until skin is crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings for AIP Paleo Pork Belly Fried Rice recipe.
This is a quick and easy recipe. And, it doesn’t hurt that it tastes amazing! Enjoy!
