      The night before you plan to cook, take your pork belly out of the fridge and pat dry with paper towels. Score fat with a very sharp knife in a diamond pattern making sure not to cut into the meat.
    • 2

      Combine salt and brown sugar and rub pork belly on all sides. Place on a drying rack on a pan and refrigerate uncovered overnight.
    • 3

      Thirty minutes before cooking, remove pork belly from fridge. Rinse under cold water and pat very dry with paper towels.
    • 4
