Bought a belly the other day at the Asian Market.  Looking back I can see I paid 2.69 a pound back in 2014.  Prices are up a bit.....not sure if it's due to pandemic or just up in general.

 

I cut it in half--the meaty tall section on the left is vac packed.  With the rest I made Chashu :)

Made a rolled up version in an Anova oven a few weeks ago. 24 hours at 158 then I blasted it for ten minutes to crisp the skin. Great stuff!

 

next time I do I’m putting the seam down.
