- Mexican pork belly in a pan begins with slicing the meat into smaller cubes, about 25 x 25 mm.
- Pour in 50 ml of water, add 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt and simmer with the lid on.
- Every 5 minutes stir. Every time there is no steam coming out through the lid pour in some water. This pieces of meat will remain soft and will not burn.
- When the meat is done and lard dissolves pour it into a cup. When it cools down, it is great to spread on bread or other food that does not contain a lot of fat.
- To meat add canned peeled tomatoes or fresh peeled tomatoes cut into smaller pieces. If you do not know how to peel tomatoes easily, look at the video tutorials HERE. Next, add 1 large onion chopped into smaller pieces, 1 tin of beans in tomato, 50 ml of water, 50 g of fresh pepper, 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1/4 tsp chilli.
- Simmer for about 5 minutes and the dish is ready. Usually it is not necessary to thicken, but if you want and do not know how, see our detailed video tutorials to thicken the dish HERE.
