Recipe Card


  • 1 1/2 pounds pork belly
  • 2 peaches, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced into ribbons basil
  • 1/2 cup buffalo mozzarella, torn
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 tablespoons red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 F. Drizzle pork belly generously with oil, salt and pepper and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes then reduce heat to 325 and bake for 20 more minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, add lemon juice, honey, oil, red pepper and salt and pepper (to taste) to a bowl and stir. Slice peaches and add to the marinade. Toss to coat.

  • Step 3

    Once the pork belly timer is up, pop the broiler on high and broil for one minute. This will give you that crispy skin you crave.

  • Step 4

    Slice pork and plate over marinated peaches, top with Buffalo mozzarella, basil and a hit of S+P.
